      Nice breakfast warm-up drinkee for the first day back to school after CHRISTmas vacation. I liked the whisper of orange flavor from the rind (I only used about 1/4 tsp), but my kids didn't care for it at all, so I think next time I'd use some orange flavoring instead. DD added that she thought the cocoa left a "chalky" feeling in her mouth. Hmmm. I thought it was perfectly flavored other than needing a bit more sweetness to jump-start my day. Made for *Comfort Cafe* Snow Queen version, 2010.

      This was a very tasty cup of cocoa. I really enjoyed it. The cocoa was deep, dark and mysterious with a hint of orange and a glimmer of the warm vanilla, garnished with whipped cream and ground cinnamon. What a lovely treat, thanks so much for sharing.

      This is very good. I had to make it twice. I scaled the recipe down for one serving and followed the directions for cooking times. It was awful, way to strong. I started to rate and then realized it just wasn't fair. The second time I made it, I brought it to a boil, turned the heat off and added the milk and orange (forgot the vanilla the second time). It was much much better! If you scale the recipe down, do not boil for two minutes. It was way too strong. I just wish I would have had some whipped cream! Thank you for the lovely cup of cocoa littleturtle!
