    My hubby loves drinking hot chocolate and I make sure its the 100% Cocoa. What a good idea to put cream and cloves on top! And I love the other add-ons here like vanila or liquer, etc. I will do this next! Thanks!

    Ronny three cheers for getting us back to making simple hot cocoa the way it aught to be made. My parents always made cocoa this way and I have carried on the tradition at my home as well.

    I made this but I left out everything except the Brandy. It's very hot in Connecticut and I will try this when we cool down. YOU bring out the devilishness in all of us! How's the weather???

    Nice! I love the directions Ronny. It nice to know someone appreciates a good cup of cocoa. It is hard to believe that people will settle for a packet of preservatives in water instead of the real thing. Thanks for keeping it "real".

    Yes....so good...and the little touch of vanilla is a must for me.

    My mom made this by the kettle-full when we had 15-20 friends over for sled riding parties. There's NOTHING like the real thing!!!
