    Hi all, I'm thinking of having some hot chocolate later tonight made up with hot water and double cream. Its Cadburys Drinking Chocolate but I have no idea how many carbs I should count this as?
    Any ideas welcome! Cheers x

    I should imagine any drinking chocolate would have loads of carbs, I could be wrong though as I've not had any.

    Drinking Choc has too many carbs as it already has sugar and milk powder in it. What you need is cocoa powder then sweeten to taste with splenda.

    100g of Green and Black Hot Choc has 63.5g carbs
    100g of Green and Black Cocoa has 13.6g carbs

    Obviously you wont be using 100g of either but it shows you the difference.

    Thanks all for your replies I'll stick to sugar free jelly and cream for a treat!

    Yep I think Atkins uses cocoa in cream with sweetener (splenda) as a dessert...it is yummy...and cocoa because of the solids is better than hot choc...
