This is a bewilderingly AWFUL recipe... Do not make it! A waste of about $20 in ingredients. Had to throw it away. So glad I tested it before giving it out for Christmas! I used all high-quality ingredients, no substitutes, Hershey's cocoa, Nestle mini-chips, good coffee crystals, etc... And everyone agreed it was undrinkably terrible. Tried to fix it after getting that consistent feedback from everyone, so as not to lose the money -- added more sugar, a bit of cinnamon, then in desperation more of the milk powder to try and dilute the bad flavor, but there was no salvaging it. Not sure how such simple ingredients combined to make something this disappointing.
