Well, this didn't go over too well with us but that may be because we're used to hot cocoa and not hot chocolate. I followed the recipe exact, using Bakers unsweetened chocolate, but it was a little bitter and not sweet enough. I did add more sugar, but it didn't cut the bitterness. I think this would be good for someone who really loves dark, dark chocolate. Sorry...this just wasn't for us.
