"Wanted to try Spice Islands Hot Chocolate but needed a way to make the calories and fat work out a bit more in my favor. Though keeping some of the chocolate makes this a wee bit of an indulgence, it certainly makes this a better option for low fat folks like me or diabetics. Have not tried the original, but I think this captures the it's flavors. Thank you Annacia for sharing your recipe and helping to create this one. :)"

"This was so yummy! And so decadent. Now I have to look up the original to see what the difference is? Made as a thank you for hosting the Summer Spectacular!"
"This is so good. I love the combination of spices. It's so warm and comforting. Thanks for sharing! Made for Gimme 5 tag."
"It's just as delightful as the original without the guilt as said. If calories aren't an issue for you then, by all means, do try the original recipe but if your watching your intake you can't go wrong with this lighter version. It's wonderful chocolate, spice (I did double the cinnamon but thats just me and something I just to routinely with pretty much any recipe) and warmth in a cup :D."
"Like Nimz said what a treat without the quilt. LOL. I tried the original version nearly a year ago and absolutely loved it. I would say this is just as good so why not have it lighter? I made it as directed not using the optional powdered milk. RICH SPICY and COMFORTING on a cold fall night! Made for the Holiday tag game."
"Wow what a treat without the quilt. I made this for sis and I last night to have while we enjoyed a beautiful evening outside. We both truly enjoyed it. Thanks so much Ms. Toni."
"I am so glad I tagged this recipe! I followed the recipe exactly and it made for a decadent delight. I love the flavor the nutmeg a cinnamon give it. I plan on using the left over to make a mocha tomorrow morning. Thanks for the wonderful recipe Toni!"
