    I did NOT need to see that. Particularly since I think I have every ingredient in my cupboards right now.

    This reminds me, I need to buy whole milk, because I have everything on the ingredients list besides that... Yum!

    Lol, me too. I also don't have the unsweetend cocoa. But I do have Ghiradelli hot cocoa mix. Hmmm, I wonder if it would work.
    These look too good not to make.

    I get confused by cocoa. I don't know why you can't use the mix unless it has a lot of sugar and powdered milk in it? I have Trader Joe's cocoa leftover from a Red Velvet Cake recipe, so that will have to do. I should post that Red Velvet Cake recipe, it's the best I've ever had.

    Those are my two absolute favorites, too. Those are always the first desserts I gravitate to.
