Yummy! This is a must try recipe for all cocoa drink lovers! This drink is sweet, yet light, a beautiful chocolate brown and yet it does not have too much chocolate. It's perfect! I've made it just now and took a small sip. Very good! I did leave out the cinnamon since I've made this for kids in the age group 7-12. I've stored it in an empty ice cream container.Thanks, Auntie Janette, for a great drink! They are going to love you for this!
