Thick & Rich Hot Cocoa

Your rating: None Average: 4.1 (123 votes)

Rich, creamy and thick enough that you may want to scoop it with a spoon, this European-style drinking chocolate is something different from the usual hot cocoa. Serve it in a demitasse or espresso cup for an elegant treat.

"I definitely can't believe its only 98 calories. However, a dash of vanilla extract, cinnamon, or grated orange peel adds some subtle flavor. "

I just finished a serving of this. I thought it was a great chocolate fix for a few calories.
I 1/2ed the recipe as I didn't have enough cocoa on hand. Found if you add more cornstarch it makes it thicker more like pudding yummy! Although that probably changes the calorie content?


I just finished drinking this: I thought it was alright. It really was not as thick as it says it is and looks NOTHING like the picture.


This was wonderfully rich and chocolatey! My whole family loved it! I am happy to have found a satisfying fat free, low sugar, creamy hot chocolate. It is hard to believe it is only 98 calories per serving. I make it just as directed. It really is quite decadent. I have an espresso set, so I serve it up in my little cups and put a small dollop of fat free cool whip on top and a sprinkle of cinnamon. My family and I will enjoy this treat regularly.

This is heavenly! I halved

This is heavenly!
I halved the recipe for a smaller serving (and less calories) and still had a generous mug full. I also used Splenda instead of sugar for even less calories. I frothed some skim milk for a creamy topping and gently swirled it into the chocolate. I curled up on the couch and sipped this wonderful rich delight and escaped the winter chill - for a little while.
