Notes

These timings work in our microwave.  You may need to adjust these times depending on the efficacy of your own microwave, the size of your mug and the temperature of the milk. 
The Princess does not stir the mix into the milk at the start as she likes the dark fudgey layer that develops on the bottom of the cup.  Feel free to stir the mix into prior to heating the milk if you prefer. 
Nutrition information is only provided for the hot chocolate mix itself, and not for a cup of hot chocolate made with the mix.
