    Amazing! Thank you so much for posting . Also nice with a little cornflour to thicken it...reminds me of Spanish hot chocolate!  -  02 Nov 2011


    I think i am the first person reviewing this who has actually done it with soy milk. i used vanilla soy milk and then added the vanilla extract, which gave it a very rich taste that i wasn't sure i liked. next time i used vanilla soy milk i omitted the vanilla extract from the recipe and it tasted really good!  -  04 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Hot chocolate is one of the things I've missed the most since I stopped eating dairy over a year ago. So when I found this recipe, I was really excited to try it. I followed the recipe exactly as written - except I reduced the salt to a pinch (personal preference). It was sooooo yummy and creamy and rich. I will be making this again and again. Thank you Cymbaline! Finally I can drink hot chocolate again!  -  03 Jan 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
