"Very intense, rich flavor -- and I didn't even use the half and half! I'm allergic to most dairy, so I used rice milk instead. Fantastic! Such a simple recipe, but so good. I'll make this again, for sure. Thanks for sharing it!"
"Excellent! We make lots of hot cocoa and everyone loved this!Half and half makes this super creamy but am sure it would be great with milk, too. Loved the hint of honey. I use Penzey's natural process cocoa which is darker than regular grocery store cocoa, and it was super chocolatey. Thanks for sharing!"
"Easy to make and yummy with the honey! I used whole milk instead of half and half(used what I had). Thank you LizAnn!"
"Very good. DD1 (5 years old) DD2 (15 months) and I enjoyed it. I made ours dairy free by making this with home made cashew milk (creamy), organic fair-trade cocoa powder, sea salt, organic, raw, local honey, no water. Whisked 1/3 cup cashew milk with the cocoa powder and sea salt until hot and combined then proceeded as per the directions. I will make this again the same way. Originally made when you were Chef Of the Day!"
"Excellent and a wonderful way to warm up in the winter months. I made it exactly as stated and it has a rich chocolaty flavor. It is one that I am going to make often. Thanks for sharing."
"This was perfect after fighting my way through the stores (Dec. 23!!) - easy to prepare and real :yummy:!!! Didn't have any half-and-half, used low-fat milk - loved it! Thanks LizAnn! :) Made for 123 Tag!"
"This is very good and perfect for that cool fall day! I only used 2C of half-and-half because that is all I had and still really enjoyed the flavor. I love a good, rich chocolatey flavor!"
"I love "Winnie The Pooh" and it certainly is a blustery day on the farm. After chopping some wood, decided to head in and grab this warmer then warm treat and relax a minute of two. Had all handy ingredients on hand, and quickly put this together~and it was simmering on the stove in no time. I did follow this exactly ~ although I am sure you could as easily do this in the microwave as well. The pinch of salt just makes the taste explode with the combination of honey and cocoa. I added a dot of cinnamon sprinkled on top, just as "Pooh" would of proceeded. Thanks so much, LizAnn. Wonderful!"
