“I found this one in the local paper last year, lost it for awhile, and I'm now posting it for safekeeping. This is a little different from the other versions posted here -- no honey, no instant hot cocoa mix, and the chocolate flavor is doubled with cocoa powder and dark chocolate chips. If you are one for sweets with a spicy kick, you can use "The Heat is On" flavor from Peanut Butter and Co in place of the regular peanut butter.”
