Back to Readers' Favorite Recipes Deep Dark Hot Chocolate

From the Author:
My eight-year-old son loves his hot chocolate. After tasting what he now calls "Mom's special recipe," no other will do. There are a lot of specialty sugar-free hot chocolate mixes you can buy now, but they all lack a rich chocolate flavor. Now you can ward off the chills with a rich, dark cup of luscious hot chocolate that no packaged mix can match. (This also makes great cold chocolate milk -- no heating required.)


1 Tablespoon unsweetened Dutch-process cocoa powder (like Hershey's)
1 Tablespoon + 2 teaspoons Splenda
2 Tablespoons hot water
1 cup 1% milk


Place the cocoa powder and Splenda into a microwaveable mug. Add the hot water and stir until smooth. Pour in the milk and stir again. Microwave on high for 1 1/2 minutes or until hot. (Do not boil.)
