Yummy hot chocolate. I followed the other reviewers advice and reduce the amount of nutmeg, and I think that was spot on! Very rich and creamy! Made for Photo Tag!

This hot chocolate is very nice, its thick, comforting, spicy and just yummy. Like Debbie, though I think reducing the nutmeg by half is a good idea. I used only 1/8 ts and felt that was a great amount lending the hot chocolate just a little bit of oomph. More would have overpowered it, though I think. Since I only have real cinnamon I used that, but only 1/2 ts. I used oat milk in place of the milk and since that is naturally sweeter, I opted out of using the sugar.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this delightful pick me up recipe with us, Acadia!

A nice rich and cream hot chocolate. Made as written. Both DH and I felt 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg was a little to much, think next time we will cut the nutmeg in half. Over all very nice. Thanks for the post.
