This is yummy. Love the slight thickness. DD (toddler) and I enjoyed this the most with the cinnamon and clove mentioned in the introduction added so I suggest you should add that as an option in the ingredients list and directions. I made this healthier to fit our diet. I used carob powder to replace the cocoa, tapioca starch rather than cornstarch (didn't whisk as much while heating), creamed honey, alcohol free vanilla, almond milk since we avoid regular milk (lactose) and that's it. I may make this again.
Mmmmmmm, really delicious. I did add a bit more sweetening (about a tsp to a tsp and a half). I loved the body that the thickening adds to the chocolate. I used double dutch cocoa and about 1/3 tsp of the almond extract. Made for Comfort Cafe Jan '10
Oh yum! Added a few mini-marshmallows, too!!
Very nice. I used almond milk and dark chocolate cocoa. Thanks!
Amazing hot chocolate, and works equally well with soya or almond milk. Thanks for posting :)
Excellent hot chocolate! The cocoa-vanilla-almond combination is just wonderful; and the cornstarch adds a creamy richness, without adding a lot of extra calories. This is the perfect antidote for a cold winter day--we'll enjoy it again soon! Thanks for posting, EdsGirlAngie! (Made for the Spain and Portugal February 2012 Honey Tag.)
Delicious! Like a cup of hot pudding before it gets really thick. Loved the almond flavor. Will be having this again.
I wasn't crazy about this drink. I didn't like the taste of it. Perhaps not sweet enough? Oh well it was worth to try!
A lovely and rich tasting hot chocolate, which tastes more decedent than it is. I up scaled the recipe to serve 4. It worked out well except next time I will add abit less almond essence. Thank you a lovely drink EdsGirlAngie.
