    super delicious. a bit too sweet for my taste, i might add an extra cup of milk next time. we froze the leftovers and it made delicious ice cream as well.

    A lovely hot chocolate. I used Recipe #261614. I used the 3 tablespoons of cocoa. Next time I may increase the cocoa to 4 tablespoons. As I am sitting here enjoying the cocoa, I am thinking of some wonderful variations...coconut rum or add some almond extract to create an Almond Joy cocoa. Delicious! Made for PRMR.

    Even with my trimmed down subs this was outstanding. Here's the rundown: for the coconut milk I used Recipe #187372 and for the sweetened condensed milk I used Recipe #319169. I saved so much fat and calories by using the subs that I didn't have a second thought about using chocolate whipped cream and 1/10 of an ounce of chocolate shavings. Oh happy day :D

    This is a tasty hot chocolate variation! My hubby loved the chocolate and coconut flavors together; said it reminded him of his favorite pie. I whisked in the full 3 TB of cocoa powder, plus 2 tsp of sugar to get it sweet and chocolate-y enough for us. With the different milks, it was definitely rich and creamy enough to leave off a whipped cream topping, so we skipped that. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
