- Stir and heat to desired warmth. DO NOT BOIL.

Very intense, rich flavor -- and I didn't even use the half and half! I'm allergic to most dairy, so I used rice milk instead. Fantastic! Such a simple recipe, but so good. I'll make this again, for sure. Thanks for sharing it!
Excellent! We make lots of hot cocoa and everyone loved this!Half and half makes this super creamy but am sure it would be great with milk, too. Loved the hint of honey. I use Penzey's natural process cocoa which is darker than regular grocery store cocoa, and it was super chocolatey. Thanks for sharing!
Easy to make and yummy with the honey! I used whole milk instead of half and half(used what I had). Thank you LizAnn!
