EASY HOT CHOCOLATE (GF)

HOT CHOCOLATE
My sons, Daniel(24) and Jonathan(20), came up with this recipe!

3 cups half Hoods Carb Countdown Milk (or cream), half water
1 oz (1 square) unsweetened chocolate
8 Splenda packets
cinnamon sprinkle

In microwaveable bowl, combine Hoods Carb Countdown milk (or cream) and water; cover and heat 2 minutes. In blender, place half hot cream mixture and chocolate (this is important as too much liquid will spill out the top upon operation. Be careful!) Blend well until chocolate has melted and stir in the rest of the liquid. Pour into 3 coffee cups. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top, if desired.

Helpful Hint: Replace Splenda packets with 0 g carb sweetener and the carb count per cup drops to 2.8 grams.

Why does this recipe call for milk and then the directions are with cream?

Thanks for catching that, Susan. I fixed it.
