One of my sins is hot cocoa. I'm too lazy to shave chocolate off
a block the way Europeans do, and besides, the calories...
So I get a tub of hot cocoa, family size. Then I add a couple
cans of Ghiradelli cocoa to it. Other brands don't blend as well.
When I am done, it's not especially sweet. And I'll be damned if
it doesn't taste like cocoa. So it's about 90F outside, and I am sitting here sipping my cocoa.
Oh... I put the stuff in a 12 oz cup with a cup of lowfat soymilk. It goes in the microwave and I heat to about 200F. I froth it up with an aerolatte
(get the one with the stand, throw it in a drawer and you'll never use it.
I use mine daily) It's a dandy little device that comes in handy a lot.
Then I put in 3 or 4oz of canned milk, whip briefly and if it's hot I am done.
