"This was wonderful and decadent! I cut this recipe down to 4 servings. I used hazelnut and it was delicious! I can't wait to try the other flavors! Thanks for sharing."
"A very yummy hot chocolate. I used hazelnut flavor. MAde the full amount as it always so nice to have to have a hot chocolate here in the Great White North winter. It looks nice in a pretty glass container on the counter too. It was all no added sugar in my case so it can be diabetic friendly if anyone might wonder. :D"
"Very comforting on a cold, dreary day. I did it on the stovetop. We sampled all 4 flavors listed, plus also peppermint syrup. Raspberry seemed to be the favorite. I have several Torani's syrups on hand so will experiment with other flavors."
"I made this with homemade hot cocoa, which I prefer to the mixes, and stirred in raspberry and vanilla syrup. I cut back a little on the amount of sugar in my cocoa and used about half the amount of syrup called for. This provided a nice background taste from the syrups and it wasn't too sweet. If I had used a cocoa mix and the full syrup I think it would have been way too sweet and the raspberry too strong for my tastes, so I would recommend starting with less and adding more to taste. I'll have to say I found the instructions for making the hot cocoa mix a bit odd. Why would you want to cook the water for hours or overnight before adding the cocoa mix? This is a big waste of time and gas or electricity; to make cocoa mix you boil water, stir in the mix and your done, in under five minutes, so why the hours???? So other than strange instructions, this is a nice simple recipe that really is a good reminder to get a little creative with the foods with can get into a rut with. Thanks for sharing, made for PRMRT"
"I didn't have a mix so used milk and dark chocolate cocoa and sugar. I added in raspberry syrup cause that's what I had and I was pleasantly surprised. The raspberry was just a background note and very good. Thanks!"
