Hot Chocolate is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An outstanding sweetener for any beverage I have tried sweeteners all my life with disgusting aftertastes and the flavor wasn't even close to the original cocktail. Not only in the case of this delectable Hot Chocolate recipe but in all beverages, Truvia has been a lifesaver and tastes just like it was made with sugar. Even other Stevia products don' taste right to me but Truvia has the process down for all beverages. I'm enthusiastic about their new baking products and brown sugar because I know it will taste right without the calories or side effects of processed sugar. All natural and tastes the same - you can't beat it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Hot Chocolate, EVER! I tried this recipe as I always have felt the negative effects of regular sugar in everything, but especially drinks. I absolutely LOVE hot chocolate and it is definitely my guilty pleasure, but now it doesn't have to be! This recipe is still the same hot chocolate I've always known, yet I can really enjoy it now and it still has the same flavor. I make this all the time and there is nothing better. Thanks, Truvia!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vegan Twist Pre-made hot chocolate mixes often contain dairy already making it nearly impossible to find a vegan option. This recipe is as easy as a mix though! I substituted the skim milk with unsweetened cashew milk and made sure to use dairy free semi sweet chocolate. The truvia adds just a lovely sweetness to the drink nothing else requires added surgars! Awesome hot chocolate :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favorite hot drink with a healthier twist! I read the recipe--and to much of my surprise I had all the ingredients to make it! I switched the skim milk for almond milk (vanilla) and used Truvia sweetener as a substitute for sugar, and it was delicious! I definitely will switch from store-bought hot cocoa with all the sugar added and make my own with less sugar that doesn't compromise great taste!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super easy to make! Add peppermint for a twist! I LOVE hot cocoa in winter. However, I am on a low sugar healthy eating plan. This is one I can make with no sugar added almond milk or almond coconut milk and keep to my healthy eating goals. It does taste a little different than regular cocoa. I recommend adding a drop or two or peppermint flavoring and then you do not notice the differnce as much.
