Top Review by Baby Kato

I love cocoa and this spicy delicious treat certainly does not disappoint. Another winner for my friend Lavender Lynn. Rich, thick, smooth, perfectly sweetened, wouldn't change a thing, the spice ratio was spot on. We enjoyed this cocoa very much. It is freezing here and we have made it several times. Of course today, when I wanted to take a photo, there is no marshmallow creme or even marshmallows left in the house, so I garnished your treat with whipping cream. Thanks for sharing a recipe that we will be enjoying for the rest of the winter.
