Sugar Free Hot Cocoa

I know this is out of season, but I"ll post another one later.
Who doesn't love a nice cup of hot chocolate when your cold? Well we do, but recently my husband found out he was diabetic so normal hot chocolate mix he shouldn't do, and lets face it it would be a lot better for all of us in our family. We looked around for options at the store, but sugar free anything isn't always the cheapest and can be hard to find. So we found a recipe online, which we have adapted a little. Here is a heads up though, it's not your rich and creamy chocolaty hot chocolate we are used but still good. And since you are saving calories you feel a little better adding a handful of marshmallows. We found that it tastes best when you use chocolate and vanilla pudding, originally the recipe just calls for vanilla but felt like it was missing something. We just use a blender when we make it but we have to do two batches so we do half the ingredients with one pkt of pudding and then the other half with the other and then mix them together in the container we are storing them in.
