    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    I used Coffee Mate vanilla-flavor powdered creamer and Nestle Nesquick, I am not certain if they sell this in the States, if not use similar products, also plain powdered cream can be used in place of vanilla, but the vanilla is better lol! Here's what to do to give as a gift; divide the mixture between two 1-quart glass jars, seal and decorate as desired, attach a tag with 1 cinnamon stick (if desired for stirring) with the following instruction...For hot cocoa, dissolve 1/3-cup mix in 1 cup (or more) boiling water, stir with cinnamon stick and enjoy!

      I think this is a really nice recipe! It tastes better than out of the packet and the recipe on the side of the Hershey's cocoa box! I did use Dark Chocolate hot chocolate in the packet instead of the chocolate drink was cheaper! And hazelnut creamer. Instead of water I used half milk half cream to make it nice and thick! I filled pint jars with enough for four servings and marshmallows on the top! I will say it is quite expensive...but I have a few boxes of powered milk I needed to use. Thanks for giving me a super cute homemade Christmas idea!!! :) Oh, I also tied a homemade chocolate dipped spoon for stirring. UPDATE: I forgot to add that when I made this I doubled the recipe and it filled 12 pint sized jars with enough mix for 4 servings then stuffed the rest with marshmallows. I also used in totaly 10 packs of the Swiss Miss Dark Chocolate hot cocoa, about half a 4 qt. box of powdered milk..and it used about a bag and a half of mini mallows! Thought this might help at the store for figuring out how much to buy :)

      I followed this recipe to a "T" using Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa. It did have a good flavor, but wasn't the "super chocolaty" flavor I was expecting. This is more of a kids version of hot cocoa rather than what most adult "chocoholics" are looking for. **If you want a super rich chocolate version for adults, try a recipe without the Nesquick, they are superior by leaps and bounds. More chocolate with less "cream" to deminish the chocolate flavor.** EDIT: I believe the name has changed since I posted my review, from "Super Chocolaty" to "Creamy." Much more accurate description of this hot cocoa. It does have a good "creamy" flavor, so I am changing my rating. My original rating was based partly on the name not being an accurate description and I was expecting a more chocolaty than creamy cocoa.

      Kittencal, this stuff is superb!! I do have one request; I believe the name of the recipe should be changed to more accurately describe it- I was thinking Chocolate Bliss....This hot cocoa is absolutely the best I've had. I'm also going to save a lot of money this winter, because I won't be wasting it at Starbucks anymore on their overpriced cocoa. Thanks for another keeper!!
