Our 3YO grandson calls Pete and I "Ugma" and "Umpa" - names he gave us before he could really talk. And of course, they've stuck.

Anyway, here is my recipe for Special Hot Cocoa:

2c half-n-half (I would use 1c ea. of heavy cream and 1c water, except that heavy cream is too expensive for our budget!)
1/3c cocoa powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp cinnamon
3 drops stevia + 7 drops EZSweetz (or your choice/amount of sweeteners)
dash salt

Combine in saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly, until steaming and just starting to get little bubbles around the edge. Serve.
