Tips on making Hot Chocolate with Stevia:
1) Never leave the saucepan. Milk can easily burn, so keep your eye on it.
2) Stir often.
3) You can use powdered stevia or liquid stevia. Most of the time I use liquid stevia.
4) The taste of your hot chocolate can easily be upgraded by using flavored liquid stevia. Examples are chocolate liquid stevia, hazelnut liquid stevia, cinnamon vanilla liquid stevia, peppermint liquid stevia, caramel liquid stevia, and coconut liquid stevia.

How to make Homemade Whipped Cream with Stevia:
