  1. YUM! This is the best Mexican hot chocolate I've ever tried. Using chocolate milk makes it extra special in my book. Made for Spring 2013 Pick A Chef.
  2. I love hot chocolate and this recipe does not disappoint. The hot chocolate was just the way I like it, thick, creamy, rich and decadent. The chocolate milk and cinnamon added depth to the drink. Thanks for sharing another winner. Made for Aussie Swap 60.
  3. Love this comfort drink. So warm, so cozy, so perfecto! Para ZWT5 Zaar Chow Hounds.
  4. I thought this was a very good recipe. I didn't have any chocolate milk so I added a few tablespoons of ground chocolate (sweetened cocoa) to the milk before hand. I also added half and half at the end to thicken it up. In general I think I could have added some more cocoa at the beginning but other than that it was a great drink. Made for the Dining Daredevils, ZWT5 2009
  5. Very good - I love chocolate and cinnamon, so knew I would love this immediately. Thanks for sharing! Made this for Ausse/NZ Recipe Swap.


<p>Update: &nbsp;I have changed my profile picture in honor of my dear best friend and loyal companion that I lost to cancer on 6/25/11. Maxx was the best dog that anyone could ever hope to have in their life. &nbsp;Until we meet again, sweet boy, you will be forever in my heart and memories. I currently live in the country with two dogs (a 12 pound&nbsp;poodle mix&nbsp;named Suki and a new member to the family, a 7-month old(?) 7.5 pound terrier mix named Angel ). &nbsp; I got Angel from the dog pound a week after I lost my beloved Maxx. &nbsp;Suki and I both needed a new companion to help us cope with our loss. &nbsp;Nothing will ever replace Maxx, but she has helped to uplift Suki's spirit. I am a secretary for a county school board. I love to cook, bake, crochet, paint, sew, read and anything to do with crafts. I was born in Tokyo,Japan. My father was in the Air Force and my moher was Japanese. I love to cook (and eat) a variety of foods from many different nations. I especially like trying out new recipes and experimenting with both old and new recipes. I also love participating in the great Zaar events like the tag games, recipe swaps, and Zaar World Tours. I recently participated in my first RSC contest. I have definitely had a lot of fun since joining Recipezaar. Update - September 20, 2007 I am proud to announce that I have just been blessed with my first grandchild. My son and daughter-in-law have given me a beautiful little granddaughter. &nbsp;[URL=;t=f6fd3ae3.pbw][IMG][/IMG][/URL] Make Reservation Online Create your own visitor map *************************************************** [Reply]</p>
