This was pretty good and simple to prepare. I think the dry milk takes something away from the taste, but it does make it easy and it is definitely a step up from the package hot cocoa.

This was ok. Using the dry milk took away some of the richness and creaminess that I like in hot cocoa. Might be better made with milk instead of water. Warmed me up on this cold night, however. Thanks for posting.

This was good. I followed the directions but used 2 tablespoons of Splenda instead of sugar. I also didn't have whipped cream so we used marshmallows. This hit the spot after the football game this evening.
