EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.

Unsweetened cocoa is the secret to the rich chocolate flavor in this healthier version. And the fat-free half-and-half provides texture and richness without adding any fat.

You can easily substitute 1 1/2 ounces of chopped bittersweet or dark chocolate for the chocolate chips.

Serve the hot chocolate with cinnamon or peppermint sticks for stirring. Or make this cocoa extra indulgent by drizzling caramel ice cream topping on the inside of each cup before adding the hot chocolate.
