"Growing up in snowy Canadian winters, my mom would always make my brothers and me hot cocoa after a night of tobogganing. When I got older - and had long since abandoned real cocoa for the instant variety - I had a craving one night for a more wholesome treat. Here's my recipe for a creamier, homestyle cup of cocoa. Perfect for those snowy winter nights!"

I followed the recipe exact, only omitting the cinnamon. Delicious hot chocolate recipe but it could use a little more chocolate, in my opinion. Very creamy.

yum! I didnt have any half n half so i just used more milk, tastes great

I tripled this recipe & used skim milk with the half and half. I slightly decreased the milk after reading other reviews. I also added a bit more cocoa. I did add about a 1/4 cup of dark choco...

This is most definitely a 5 star recipe. The chocolate sauce is very rich and the addition of cinnamon and vanilla make this recipe a keeper. I highly recommend it! Thanks for sharing!

The best hot chocolate on the planet! Thank you so much for sharing this amazing recipe.

Wonderful! I even used 1% milk and no-fat half and half. Will definitely make many times more.

exactly as recommended. perfect

This is the perfect hot cocoa!

Very rich & creamy. I used additional cocoa powder & cinnamon. After a day of ice fishing the boys were thrilled to come home to this warm treat.
