    This was a really easy recipe to follow and was even better because I love chocolate and coffee and it is usually hard to decide whether or not to have a hot chocolate or a coffee in the morning but this way I get both 🙂 I will have this again! Made for the ZWT4. Thanks 🙂

    Delicious! I absolutely loved this hot chocolate. I used “Baker’s” semi-sweet chocolate which I melted in the microwave until it was just soft. I added the sugar, salt, cinnamon, coffee, & 1/4 c. hot water, stirring until mixed. I heated the milk & remaining water in a pot on the stove until hot. I whisked the chocolate mixture into the milk mixture until blended. I removed the pot from the heat and added the vanilla. This was enjoyed with my morning bagel and is a wonderful way to get my chocolate fix & coffee fix at the same time. Thank you for sharing this delicious recipe…it is definitely a keeper! *Made for ZWT4*

    What a special and yummy treat! I did need to add a bit more sugar.

    I used Ghiradelli baking chocolate in mine and found it to my liking. Made for the “Comfort Cafe”, a tag game.

    I have just made and DEVOURED this – gorgeous! I did NOT add any salt – but did add a pinch of ground chilli powder for that authentic S American KICK! I used 70% French chocolate for a VERY decadant taste – just amazing – loved this! Made for ZWT4 – thanks! FT:-)

    Wow, this is so warm and so good! It’s a first for me to put salt in coffee/hot chocolate but it did work here. Tastes similar to Spiced Brazilian Mocha but not as sweet. I zipped them in the microwave and having experienced before burning chocolate as is, I melted it along with the milk then later on the hot water. Just my preference. Thanks for sharing! Made for WZT4.

    Nice twist to an old favorite. Very tasty.

    I did a half serve & only used half the amount of sugar required but I did use bittersweet chocolate which probably helped sweeten it a bit. I did mine in the microwave same as Pneuma but I left the salt out. What a yummy & decadent treat. Made for ZWT 4.

    I had this when I first woke up this morning and it was indeed a treat! I used chocolate soy milk and bittersweet chocolate(and decaf coffee crystals). Thank you! Made for ZWT4-South America.

    This is delicious! I used semi-sweet chocolate and instead of hot water and instant coffee I used freshly brewed coffee. Since I normally use skim milk I also substituted part of the milk with 5% cream. Made for ZWT Family Picks
