  1. added a little bit of vodka and gave some to my kid he passed right out
  2. I made this last night for the DM as a night cap (though only added 1 teaspoon of sugar but otherwise made as directed) and she thoroughly enjoyed what she took as a treat. Thank you Lauralie41, made for Went To Market tag game.
  3. Yummy. The cinnamon and vanilla are so good in this. A very comforting cocoa recipe! Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT8 Mexico/Tex-Mex.
  4. Yum, the addition of cinnamon and vanilla is lovely. A great cocoa variation. Thanks for sharing! ZWT8
  5. Great cocoa recipe! I loved the cinnamon and vanilla in this. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT 8.


  1. Very tasty. I used sipping chocolate instead of the sugar & baking cocoa, but the flavors of the cinnamon and vanilla came through nicely. I would definitely make this again. Made for ZWT 5.
  2. I don't ever think I'll buy the packet kind again! I love the rich taste of the spices and cocoa. I used apple pie spice instead of just regular cinnamon and it was great! The only downfall is that this recipe only made enough for about 1 1/2 mugs (standard mugs) so if you want to make it for more than one person I suggest you change the serving amounts.
  3. Thanks for this recipe! I added almond extract instead of vanilla.
