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.
