This is my Christmas tip. I have a friend who is diabetic, and cannot have anything with sugar, but also cannot use Nutrasweet as it gives him headaches. So I devised a sugar free (also fat free) hot chocolate mix using Splenda. I put the mix in a clear jar, and labeled it with a paint pen. I wrote "Snowman Soup" on it and randomly made "Snowflakes" around the jar.
Mix thoroughly and place in covered container.
To use, measure 1/3 cup into mug and fill with hot water. Stir well, enjoy!
If you can have sugar you can add it instead of the Splenda, but just want some low calorie hot chocolate, this would also be good, and you could even slip in a few mini-marshmallows .

Thanks for the recipe. Will try to blend with decaf or regular instant coffee instead of cocoa and see if it mimics International Cafe' blends. No limit to the imagination!
Thank you so much for the recipe!!! I needed a gift to take to someone who is diabetic and I have been at a total loss until now.
