Deep Dark Hot Chocolate Recipe
Diabetic Friendly Recipe
Dutch process cocoa is the absolute best to use in this deep dark hot chocolate recipe! Add a little Splenda, hot water and 1 percent milk and walah! Delicious and rich hot chocolate.
1 tablespoon unsweetened Dutch process cocoa powder (like Hershey's)
1 tablespoon plus 2-teaspoons Splenda
2 tablespoons hot water
1 cup 1 percent 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.)
If you're out and about and craving a nice hot chocolate beverage, go ahead and treat yourself to a Starbucks. Their hot chocolate made with whole milk weighs in at 260 calories (without the whipping cream). That's not bad for this sweet treat, plus it has vitamin A, iron and bone-building calcium.
