Can you drink hot chocolate when your pregnant?

Chef's answer
Limit caffeine That equals about two five-ounce cups of coffee. (The typical mug holds eight ounces or more.) It is also important that caffeinated beverages do not replace a pregnant woman's daily intake of water. Coffee, tea, colas (and some other soft drinks), chocolate, hot chocolate and cocoa all have caffeine.
