    Mami J's Note:

    I made this up on a cold evening when I felt like making something different from my usual Mexican chocolate. The orange adds a subtle flavor and fragrance. For the adults, you can add some Cointreau instead of the Homemade Tangerine Liqueur that I use, or you can skip it altogether.

      OK, I changed most of the ingredients so it could fit our diet but yummy for DD (toddler) and I! I'm sure ours wasn't as sweet but that is nice. For the milk I used Almond Milk (Almond Drink Base), I enjoyed the subtle orange flavour, I used carob chips for all the chocolate. Delicious I may make again. I did just heat and not boil the almond milk just in case separation occurs (I'm not sure if that would happen or not). Made for What Kids Eat Tag Game in KK's forum.

      OMG! This is so good, taste just like the chocolate oranges you buy at the candy counter of my local supermarket. I added a teaspoon of Grand Marnier to the cup before filling it then topped off with whipped cream and more of the orange zest. This is bound to be repeated again and again. TFS, made for the Beverage Tag.
