    Oolala's Note:

    This sounds so delicious! The Barefoot Contessa recommends using Valrhona (French) or Callebaut (Belgain) brands of high quality chocolate for this so splurge!

      This is a very tasty, decadent hot choclate drink. It had such a rich chocolate flavor, and was very smooth and creamy. The cinnamon stick or vanilla bean is very handy to use to stir the drink throughout, keeping all the flavors from separating. Made for the "Secret Ingredient" tag game.

      I fixed this for my husband and myself. He didn't like it, but he doesn't care for too many flavors mixed together. I loved the coffee and vanilla. It was rich and very good. Thanks!

      I made this for Comfort Cafe and it was the best. It's cold outside and this really hit the spot. I have always used the powdered hot chocolate mix that you buy in the store. Never again. This was delicious.
