  1. I made this with 1 ounce of bittersweet chocolate and 2% milk. I didn't need any sugar (or substitute)as the fat-free topping made it plenty sweet enough for me. I really enjoyed this simple to make tasty hot chocolate. Yep, I drank it all! Made for Football Pool 2011. Thanks for sharing!
  2. I made this to enjoy last evening. While it was good, it didn't knock my socks off. I added the amount of spices the recipe listed, but found the flavour wasn't "intense" enough for my tastebuds. Next time, I will increase the amounts. I topped mine with ultra low-fat whipped topping & a dash of cinnamon & cocoa. Made for Comfort Cafe-Jan'10.
  3. Made this for the DM and myself and we thoroughly enjoyed. I topped with a little low fat whipped cream and a pinch of ground cinnamon. Thank you Sherrybeth, made for Comfort Cafe and the theme Coffee for the Diabetic.
  4. We just LOVED this!! I made this after dinner last night, and it was so creamy and delicious. DD even had to have her own little cup. Will definitely be making this again, tasted so wonderful, and agreeable with my diabetic issues. Thanks for the recipe! :) Made for Sherrybeth's Football Pool 2008, Week #13 win.
  5. I loved the spices, coffee and the chocolate. I skipped the topping. There was something (I think it was the allspice) that resisted blending well into the coffee base. This left a grit in the bottom portion of the mug that I wasn't in love with. I believe that I'll try this again without the allspice and see if that was it. It's certainly worth another try. It's yummy and legal! Thanks for posting Sherrybeth.
