    This is my favorite hot chocolate recipe by far! When I'm feeling adventurous I add a little cinnamon and sometimes a pinch of cayenne.
    wonderful actually didn't use microwave made on top of stove just added a little water and boiled it then added milk.
    This is so much better than hot cocoa with a mix.
    Once again minimal effort...great results! Why...WHY make instant?? Double or triple the recipe, no problem, still delicious.
    YYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    LOVE IT!!! I HAVE BEEN DRINKING THIS COCOA FOR OVER 45 YEARS. IT ALWAYS MAKES ME THINK OF MY GRANNY.
    OH! SOOOO YUMMY!!!! Not to mention that cocoa powder has way more antioxidants than blueberries, so it is a health boost too!! My kiddos favorite and soy milk works too!!
