For the most part, I can live without sugary treats, but I definitely miss dark chocolate (which has white sugar in it). Dark chocolate has some health benefits and is, of course, delicious.
So I tried a new kind of hot chocolate that I made with Hershey's cocoa powder (100% cocoa), milk, and blackstrap molasses (shown in photo). I have to admit, the molasses is strong and kind of overwhelms the chocolate. But I still liked it. Blackstrap molasses has 115 mg. of calcium in one tablespoon! It also has magnesium and other nutrients. So my 8 oz. of hot chocolate had about 200 calories, 415 mg of calcium, 3 g. of fat and 8 g. of protein. Here's the recipe:
Place 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder in a mug. Add a few tablespoons of hot water and stir to make a syrup. Add 1 tablespoon blackstrap molasses. Then add 8 oz. of hot milk and stir.
