I made this up this morning to satisfy my chocolate and oatmeal cravings. Its quite similar to a few recipes on this site, but I thought that I should post my recipe, too! If desired, adding a fresh peach or two is okay.

This recipe just wasn't for me. I may try it again using less ginger and cinnamon. The spices were just too overwhelming.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine the oatmeal, hot cocoa mix and dry milk powder together. (add ground cinnamon and ginger if using).
  2. Add the boiling water and microwave for about 20 seconds, or until bubbly (keep your eyes peeled, you would'nt want it boiling over).
  3. If you're using quick-cooking oats, increase the cooking time to 1 minute.
  4. Give it a quick stir and let it rest/sit for 30 seconds.
  5. delicious (to me, at least)!
