WOW! This is a very decadent hot chocolate. A nice after dinner dessert drink. Be calls for 4 ounces of milk chocolate :-) ...standard Hershey bars are 1.55 ounces. I used one of the larger 4.4 ounce bars. Thanks for posting! Made for Comfort Cafe, Winter 2010.

I really didn't expect to like this too much. Earl Grey is so distinctive, I wasn't sure how it would marry with chocolate. Surprise! It's delicious. :-) Thanks, Julesong

Wasn't sure what to expect from this combination but hey, I'm adventurous! Turns out it's a good thing too because this cup really is quite delicious. Made for the Comfort Cafe, a tag game.
