Annacia's Spice Islands Hot Chocolate (Lighter)

READY IN: 8mins
Recipe by justcallmetoni

Wanted to try Spice Islands Hot Chocolate but needed a way to make the calories and fat work out a bit more in my favor. Though keeping some of the chocolate makes this a wee bit of an indulgence, it certainly makes this a better option for low fat folks like me or diabetics. Have not tried the original, but I think this captures the it's flavors. Thank you Annacia for sharing your recipe and helping to create this one. :)

This was so yummy! And so decadent. Now I have to look up the original to see what the difference is? Made as a thank you for hosting the Summer Spectacular!
