I cheated and used 60% FRENCH cocoa powder for this divine drink! I also used Demerara sugar in place of the corn syrup for a rich and added flavour. Cut this back to serve one, moi! The vanilla id an authentic addition and makes a French hot chocolate French! Made for the Comfort Cafe Jan 2010. FT:-)
