    I think it’s too much water. It’s super liquidy & doesn’t look like syrup at all.

    Tastes okay though!

    Hello Carrie and the crew!
    I do have a trick for this recipe… Instead of preparing with unsweetened cocoa, I simply mix Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate and a packet of Sweet n Low, in a cup of coffee! Way, way, cheaper than Starbucks!
