I used to love those instant packets, but they started to just taste like chemicals. Now I use whole milk or coconut milk with unsweetened cocoa & honey if I want it sweeter.

Now if I could only find marshmallows without artificial colors... :)

sometimes i do the actual cocoa & sugar method... sometimes i use nutella on the rare occasion i have it... but most of the time i use a packet- i don't have it often. i use the land-o-lakes ones and just use less powder than they say for 1 serving (or more milk).

Current goal:
-8 pounds (32 total) by October

When I make it for my kids I use whole milk, cocoa and maybe a touch of honey. 1 cup milk:1-2 tbsp cocoa. Shhh... the last few times I've made it I omitted the honey and no one noticed.

I usually drink it unsweetened. 1-2 tbsp cocoa powder, 8-12 ounces of hot water, and 1/4 cup 2% milk and a tiny bit of vanilla. If I am im the mood I add sugar, or you could add a calorie free sweetener.

I like to make it with 1% milk, cocoa powder and a little bit of sugar.

I have never liked diet hot chocolate. It never tastes right or melts properly

Made it to my maintenance weight of 125 pounds.

Even though I have reached goal. I still don't know everything about weight loss.

Which do you prefer? Instant such as Swiss Miss- Skim milk with a little Hershey syrup, they now have Dark chocolate, Or do you make your own using Coco? I'm finding the Swiss Miss diet is tasting more salty and does no completely disolve in hot water.
