This is a great hot drink on cold winter nights. It tastes as creamy and rich as any other cocoa with heavy cream and melted chocolate, without all the fat and calories!

This recipe makes a really great hot chocolate! I used regular 1/2% milk and it was still rich and creamy. The vanilla and almond were a nice touch - both aromatic and tasty. Thanks for sharing this yummy recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2008

- 1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
- 1⁄3 cup hot water
