Very good, quick and easy. I made it with 2 cups half and half and 2 cups milk to make it creamier. Might add a little extra cocoa next time but it's good as is as well

I ran out of cocoa mix and I knew my kids would be lookjing for it when they came in from the snow so I tripped across this one. Super easy, very quick, and very convenient ingredients (I keep them all on hand). Kids were very happy with it. =)
