Hot Chocolate Latte

Saturday, February 27, 2010

I got the new Weight Watchers Cook Book, Slow Cook It, and it has a lot of good recipes in there. Actually, it was better than I thought considering it was only slow cooker recipes. There is a lot of variety in the 165 recipes in the book including beverages. I never thought I would be drinking from the slow cooker, but this recipe caught my eye. Could it possibly be because it had the word Chocolate in it? Probably, but it was mighty good on this very cold day even in Florida! The cinnamon was quite evident in this concoction, which is common with the taste of mocha, but I love cinnamon so I had no problems with that. I cooked it for an hour and a half on high which was perfrect for me. 2 points isn't so bad per serving but make sure you have some friends or family to share it with, otherwise you will be tempted to drink it all day like me.
