MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 20, 2013

I love hot chocolate and aside from my own recipe this was the best recipe I've come across. It's delicious. The next time I make this I will not add the almond extract. I like using almond extract but I did not like it in this.

Was so excited to make this recipe because there is a blizzard where I live right now. But after I tasted it, all I could taste was the almond extract. I also found it too sweet. I even cut back on the sugar too. I wouldn't make this again :(
