When I first developed this version of hot chocolate, my husband was quite skeptical. But after one taste, his doubts were erased. It really hits the spot on a chilly morning, especially when served with cinnamon rolls or doughnuts. —Darlene Miller, Linn, Missouri

"Never thought of using maple. Didn't have any maple flavoring so I used regular maple syrup and some agave to taste instead of regular sugar. Very good!! Thank you!"
