Full Answer

The rich chocolate variety of Swiss Miss hot chocolate is often missing the caffeine-free designation and likely contains slightly more caffeine than other versions. Chocolate naturally contains a small amount of caffeine, and the USDA National Nutrient Database lists hot chocolate as containing around 5 milligrams of caffeine on average. Compared to the 47 milligrams of caffeine contained in black tea, the amount in hot chocolate is relatively small.
