    A wonderful alternative to hot cocoa! I used vanilla bean paste and it was wonderful. Made for ZWT 7.

    Been making this as substitute to hot chocolate for a couple years now. I love it!

    Such a simple yet delicious change of pace. I used 2% milk instead, a little less vanilla and a generous sprinkling of cinnamon. Perfect for the cold weather right now! Plus I struggle with drinking enough milk but this just made milk much better! Thanks!

    This recipe is so great. I even love to drink it cold, minus the whipped cream and cinnamon, to pair with some pancakes, waffles, or my favorite desserts. This one's a kepper.

    This will be one of my new favorites when the snow starts flying! I used 2% milk and added Cool Whip and cinnamon on top. I'm also going to try it with almond extract instead of vanilla, I think that would taste good too. Thanks for sharing Brenda! Made for Zwizzle Chicks for ZWT6.

    I have been making this for years. It's especially good if you have a milk steamer to froth it. I have also done it in very small portions with half and half or whole milk and nutmeg instead of cinnamon. I always thought I was just strange to like this. I'm glad there are others. Thanks for posting and do try it. You'll be hooked.
