I made this to reduce my carbs. I think it might be the recipe from the cocoa can with appropriate substitutions for low carb or diabetic.

So easy and so delicious!! I used my microwave instead of the stove and it worked perfectly! Did use only about 1 tablespoon of Splenda per cup since I don't like my hot chocolate too sweet. Thanks Sue! :)

I really enjoyed this. I have made the original Hershey recipe several times, but this is the first time I subbed Splenda. I used non-fat milk and regular vanilla though. I was afraid this would have an aftertaste or something, but it actually was pretty good. I always felt like the original had too strong a cocoa flavor, and the same could possibly be said about this, but in general this was a good substitute for a dieter.
