Spiced Hot Cocoa

Spiced Hot CocoaThis rich and creamy spiced cocoa has about a third of the calories compared to a coffee shop mocha. Plenty of spice and a hint of warming chili pepper is the secret for making it special. For low sugar diets, use the stevia and cut 17 calories and 4 grams of sugar per serving.
