Yummy! Made it and brought it to work to heat in my little lunch crock. (check it out: ) Didn't get it frothy, but tasted fantastic. I think the hot fudge sauce takes it over the top. Thanks for a treat during year end chaos at work Sharon! Made for PRMR 2012.

Cut down to a single serving. Made as a quick and easy reward after a long day fighting the Black Friday mobs. Was wonderfully hot, dark and rich delight. Made with out the stir ins and to honest did not miss them at all. Thanks so much for the post.
