This is perfect. I made this in the microwave, and it took about 2 1/2 minutes. I used 2 tsp. Splenda, because I was out of sugar, and I didn't use any of the optional ingredients. Not too sweet, but just a perfect chocolate start to the morning! I'll definitely be making this again. Thanks, Roosie!

I just made the basic version. First point, the servings are very small and are technical serving sizes a dietician would use rather than the amount you would actually eat. Even my three year old could easily polish this entire recipe off in one go. And that was the doubled version. It is quite sweet even with 2 tsp of sugar. If you are adding sultanas and other dried fruit you may want to cut back on the amount of sugar. Makes a pleasant change to the whole oatmeal routine. Worth a go.

Yum. I used dark chocolate cocoa. Used splenda instead of sugar and added a sprinkle of cinnamon. Cooked in the microwave.

Made with cocoa powder as directed, but wasn't thrilled with the taste so I added about 2 Tablespoons of PB2 (Chocolate Peanut Butter powder) - I omitted salt and used Stevia in place of sugar, Almond Milk in place of dairy milk. Did not add anything else. <br/>To cook I zapped it in the microwave for about a minute.

My kids really enjoyed this for a change of pace this morning. I might put a tad of vanilla extract in it next time.

This is really good. I made this with carob powder instead of cocoa, Truvia instead of sugar, creamy rye flakes instead of oats, and skim milk. I will definitely make this again. (Maybe I'll try adding some sliced banana or strawberry jam, that will make this amazing!)

This was really good! Lightly chocolate-y. I used the optional nuts, but next time want to try the indulgent addition of chocolate chips. This fed 1 person.

Easy and very yummy! I made as directed (apart from using rice milk instead of cow's milk due to allergy), then added a handful of walnuts and a sprinkle of mini chocolate chips; it was like eating a brownie for breakfast, but SO much more nutritious! :) The only thing I think I'll do differently next time is reduce the amount of milk, since even after cooking a while it still wasn't quite the thickness I prefer. Thanks for sharing!
