I've made this several times already, it's so easy. I only use 1 Tbsp sugar and it is perfect. Sometimes I sprinkle cinnamon on top too. Thanks! [Made for The I Recommend Tag]

Very yummy (and super easy)! I used Splenda and a mixture of coconut milk and skim milk. The vanilla was a tad much, so next time I might use vanilla soy milk and eliminate the vanilla extract.

Very good. I used Girardelli premium cocoa powder and reduced the sugar to 1 tablespoon of Splenda (as I think the cocoa mix has enough sweetener), and I thought this was a delicious cup of hot cocoa. I think the vanilla was a little too prominent in this drink though, even with the scant amount of just 1/4 teaspoon vanilla. But even so, it was a real treat. We enjoyed it. Made for the "Best of 2011" tag game. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Margie99.
