What a brilliant recipe this is! It's a beautiful day in Oman today - the weather is awesome. We had a sudden rainfall that was out of this world, couple of minutes, and the place has become as pretty as the wings of a butterfly:) I made this a little after the rainfall, and everyone who drank it, went ooh and aah over it;) It's really good, and, I feel the vanilla syrup is very necessary if you want to enjoy this best. It really does make a difference. Very tasty comfort beverage. Thank you for posting, Auntie CJ!

Rich and comforting with a delicate aroma of vanilla. I made it as is except I went very heavy handed with the vanilla syrup. I had some left over hot cocoa so I stuck it in the fridge blended it up with some ice and vanilla syrup and we were in for a treat. Thank you Charlotte for sharing.
