    Now I'm not much of a low fat, artificial type hot chocolate lover although I do partake of the odd Options type drink and I love a yummy full fat Starbucks hot choc with all the trimmings but having just walked the dog in the freezing cold I needed something to warm me up and I've opened a sachet of....

    Highlights Dark chocolate drink and it's absolutely gorgeous!!! I bought them on a whim for something different and now I'll have to try and find a pot of it as the sachets are expensive. I'm please that after all this time I've managed to find one I really like!

    Just wanted to share with you lovely people :D

    They are 2 syns each and go really nice and thick.

    Yep, I added a splash of milk after the hot water as I find these drinks don't mix in properly if I add the milk first.

    I love these but I'm sure the lifeline online diary stated that the dark chocolate had a different syn value to the milk choc ones. Do you know if that is right? My favourite is the mocha one MMMMmmmmmm

    Thanks mate- like you I don't really go for 'low fat' things if it feels like a compromise, so I look forward to giving these a go now the weather has gone bad

    Yes, I must say that I far prefer the highlights to the options hot chocolate. They have changed the recipe recently and they are all really chocolatey. The mocha one is also great! Add some skooshy cream or marshmallows and they make a great indulgent yet low syn treat :D

    Abbysmum - what squirty cream do you use? I buy the Asda Good For You version and it works out as 0.5 syns for 25ml :)
