Hmmm, yummy! Was it bad that I had both servings and that my parents got upset that I didn't share any of it with them! I didn't have the kahlua (I used the milk chocolate), but my father had kahlua in his and he said he liked it. By the way he did have a few sips before adding the kahlua and he said it was good just the way it was as well.
Hot chocolate has to be rich to be worth it, and this was worth it. I decided to make this on the spur of the moment and didn't have the half and half or cream. All I had was skim milk, and I used semi sweet chocolate (personal preference). Very strong chocolate flavor (YUM!). I will definitely have to try this with something other than skim milk, but it was still very good with skim.

Hi Everyone! I have just changed my image here on 'zaar. The big bird in the pic is none other than me, BirdyBaker. It was from Halloween 04. I made the costume myself and it was so much fun!. I am a highschool student and I love photography,painting crafts and everything else artistic. I LOVE to write, anything, from essays to fiction to poetry. It's so much fun! I also am very interested in Asian culture and want to work in Japan someday. I have a passion for cooking and try to cook as much as I can, trying to make a different dish each time. I am just crazy over my 3 birds, George Arthur, Bailey and Jazzy, hence the name "BirdyBaker"...lol
