What funny timing for this tip. I was at the store today and had hot chocolate K-cups and a box of those packages comparing ingredients, and ended up putting both back and stuck with tea. I'm tired of all the crap they put in our foods. This is a great alternative, and I just looked up the creamer and Coffeemate is all-natural. Going to make some of this over the weekend.

WOW! I had no idea, and I did use Coffeemate! Please tell me how you like it. It has a richer chocolate taste because it is made with real cocoa, which I LOVE! However, a couple of the kids said it was too chocolaty tasting. The rest liked it much better than the packaged stuff. I suppose for kids you could put in less cocoa and more powdered sugar. LOL But I like it how it is. I came up with this recipe from a mix my stepdad used to make but it was so gross. Nestle Quik and powdered milk. So I thought what if I used real cocoa, creamer and powdered sugar and it worked on my first try!!! I was pretty impressed with myself.

Sounds great. Wonder how it would work with one of the new Keto creamers out there. Love all things homemade @heatherholter
