Made this as a sugar free, chemical free alternative for my son's hot chocolate. I made it with 10 Tablespoons of trivia.

Made this recipe again today and used 1 cup of xylitol instead of stevia. It has been a while since I last made it, but we liked it then. The reviewer who thought this tasted awful either used too much or too little stevia when making the recipe. Today I started with 1\2 cup of xylitol, but added a second 1\2 cup when tasting it after mixing.
