The minute it starts to rain and get cold I know my kids will come home from school requesting hot cocoa. When my kids request cocoa I usually give it to them as they don't request it often and I am usually having a similar desire for a hot cup of tea or coffee. That said I hate making the instant packets of cocoa. Even the sugar free or fat free ones, which I think taste bad. So I found several recipes for cocoa online and consolidated them to make this:
1 C. Skim Milk
1 Tbls. Cocoa Powder
2 tsp. Splenda
Warm the milk on the stove and once it hits a simmer mix in the cocoa and splenda.
This one was loved by kids and grown ups alike!
