      I was going to complain that the cook time in step 1 was too long then I see that it was supposed to be MEDIUM power. Oops. I did it full power and didn't watch it. Part had boiled out of the cup by the time I got to it. I made this as written and found it the right mix of sweet and rich. Sad that it takes that much sugar to get the effect though!
      I like to make my own mixes so at some point I will try mixing it with powdered milk to see if it still tastes as good. Some cinnamon would also make a good addition!

      This is, to me, a perfect cup of hot cocoa! Easy, fast & yummy. I used 1 1/2 tbsp of Splenda for the sugar, skim milk & since I seem to have a good micro--needed under 2 min total for the whole recipe. I hate those sugar free/fat free cocoa mixes--they just don't taste good at all!! This was great cuz it wasn't too sweet or fattening. Thank u so much for sharing!!
