hot cocoa caffeine
Hot cocoa or hot chocolate is a popular drink made by adding cocoa and sugar or hot milk chocolate syrup.
The drink contains very little cocoa, so the caffeine content is very low.
However, adding more cocoa or chocolate syrup than expected will increase the caffeine content.
Some brands also add powdered milk to their hot cocoa mixture so that the drink is made with hot water.
Hot chocolate or hot chocolate should not be confused with hot chocolate or mocha.
Hot chocolate is usually made from cocoa and real melted chocolate for a thick, rich consistency. This will have more caffeine.
A mocha is made of espresso, cocoa powder, and steamed milk, so it will contain a lot more caffeine.
Although hot cocoa is a popular drink for children, parents should be more concerned with the sugar it contains than the small amount of caffeine in the drink.
