I have not tried this recipe. I got the recipe from Dr. Weil. This homemade hot cocoa is lower in sugar (and carbohydrates) than other recipes. It can be made with soy milk. Try flavoring it with cinnamon for a little change.

  1. In a small saucepan, stir together the cocoa powder and the sugar.
  2. Add the water and stir well.
  3. Cook over medium heat until the mixture comes to a low boil and the sugar dissolves.

  5. Reduce the heat to low and stir until warmed through.

Loved it! Very comforting. Not sure what the point of the water is; I just used all milk. The almond added a differnt twist. Made for Comfort Cafe 1/10.
