Will not know that until I have tried it. I did try the following though: 1 mug of Hot Water, 2 heaping tablespoons of Nestles Chocolate - NO sugar added and 1/2 tablespoon C&H light (all natural sugar & Stevia blend) . . . tastes good to me

Actually to be clear. Carbohydrates are in grams. So 15g of carbs is 15 grams. Now...15 grams is considered 1 carb exchange if you go by the exchange system. So 2-4 exchanges a meal is 30-60 grams of carbohydrate.

Oh, so I need to add a pic. Back when I did this, there was no such thing as Pintrerest. I will see what I can do about that.

I didn't make any this winter, but it isn't over yet. I have been thinking of getting another batch together this year.

my first wife used to make something like this all the time for me and my sons. Only the way she made it, it was NOT diabetes friendly. I would expect it would be good this way as well.

You can use what ever sweetener you choose. I don't like artificial sweeteners, so I use Stevia products.

OH YUM! Now I have something to do with the container of Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder in my closet! It's a rainy, chilly day here and THAT is a perfect way to end my day after work! Sounds EXCELLENT! I use liquid sweetener myself, I just find the taste better, but everyone has their own likes and dislikes when it comes to that. Thanks for the recipe! :)

I save a little coffee from the morning, then add unsweetened cholocate almond milk (Almond Breeze), Hershey's cocoa, and just a little dark brown sugar, honey, or else a few semi-sweet cholocate morsels. I just don't trust the artificial sugars and figure that that little bit of sugar is a reasonable compromise- less than a tsp a few times a week. Oh- and a little vanilla and cinnamon!

I just don't do the splenda thing. That is why I make my own with stevia. I know the full on sugar with mini marshmallows has only 15g of carbs...but they are nearly all sugar. Mine has carbs, but it is filled with fiber and antioxidants more than the pre packaged ones. I just wonder if there is a powder medium that can replace the milk? Maybe whey? I might have to try that.

i drink Swiss Miss sugar free hot chocolate, i can't remember off hand what the carbs are because i threw away the box, but it is lower then 18 carbs and you can still add cinnamon, mint, etc. it's less work when you're in a hurry. i'm not a coffee drinker and i never buy ½ & ½, so it's cheaper.

GabbyPA 2012-01-25 08:59:28 -0600 Report

My first batch is almost gone...I may have to try to create one with less carbs in it. I'm not sure how though, any suggestions?

Oh thank you, thank you!!!!!!! This will be wonderful to put in my cinnamon coffee—a real taste treat!!!!!!

Rockin' Ruby is right. Generally speaking our snacks should be between 15-20 g of carbs. Always try to combine it with a bit of protein or fiber to help it work better for you.
