    Netgirl's Healthy Cookbook's Note:

    Since the taste of chocolate triggers the release of opiates in the brain, causing release of dopamine, some people choose to avoid it. This recipe is adapted from the one in Breaking the Food Seduction: The Hidden Reasons Behind Food Cravings---And 7 Steps to End Them Naturally by Neal Barnard, M.D., founder of the Physician's Committee For Responsible Medicine (www.pcrm.org).

      Oh my this is delicious. I think because I haven't had a hot chocolate since I was a child. DD (toddler) was feeling kind of down with a cold so I thought this wasn't too unhealthy with a few changes to make her happy. She loves it!!! I used carob syrup which doesn't have added sweetner (dibis karoub in Middle Eastern stores) because that is what I had, tapioca starch to be corn free (thickens about the same consistency) We do not do soy so I used evaporated milk with some water added. We try to be dairy free that's why it was canned! I used a wonderful vanilla paste which has vanilla bean in it and no alcohol added and like another reviewer I sweetened ours with honey to be healthier. I also made this higher class by spicing some of it up with Mixed Spice - Traditional Old Fashioned English Pudding Spice. I would make this again when someone who shouldn't have chocolate craves some.
