      What a very delicious mix to make at home! After whipping this together, I made some of it as hot chocolate/cocoa for myself & some of it as mocha for my coffee-loving other half! Both of us, extremely satisfied with the results! Thanks for posting a great recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in the current Cumfort Cafe event]
