I used Swiss Miss sugar-free hot cocoa and this turned out very good. I also used Cool Whip Free as a topping to cut back on fat instead of whipped cream. (made for My 3 Chefs game)

This was so good I had 2 ! I used flavored hot cocoa mix, which didn't do anything for me flavor-wise, so I'll use plain next time. Definitely watch the half and half in the micro - I put it in for 90 seconds and it bubbled over. This one's a keeper ! Thanks for posting :)
