1.  Combine half and half with water in a 12-oz (or larger) mug.

2.  Heat in microwave for 1 minute.

3.  Stir in both packets of cocoa mix. If lumps remain, crush them against the side of the mug to blend them in.

4.  Return to microwave for another 30 secs-1 minute. Adding the chocolate mix before the final heating makes it form a layer of foam on top.

5.  Stir again. Top with fat-free whipped cream.

Cooks' note:
I don't like the taste of the fake "whipped toppings" so I always use the pressurized fat-free whipping cream.
For a similar reason (as well as the absence of titanium dioxide) I use fat-free half and half instead of "creamer."
I use Nestle's fat-free 20 calorie rich milk chocolate cocoa mix.
