Today seemed like the perfect day to share a hot chocolate idea. I've been cranking Christmas tunes non-stop (since I won't be home this year) and a mug of cocoa would be the most perfect accompaniment.
I made this mug of s'mores hot chocolate last year and haven't stopped thinking about it since.
A mug of cocoa is already a perfect winter treat. But when it is ramped up with s'mores fixin's? Even better!
S'mores Hot Chocolate
2 servings of your favorite hot chocolate, prepared
1/2 sheet of graham cracker, crushed up
4 large marshmallows (or as many as you wish)
1. Dip the mug rims into a little bit of milk and then into the graham cracker crumbs.
2. Preheat broiler and line small baking sheet with foil. Spread marshmallows out and broil until golden.
3. Carefully pour hot chocolate into the prepared mugs. Top with marshmallows. Drizzle with chocolate syrup.
4. Sip and enjoy!
Please, please, please use a good hot cocoa mix/recipe here aka not one of those instant, just-add-water packets. Those things are way weak taste-wise and loaded with extraneous crap. I like using the Ghirardelli unsweetened cocoa mix to which I add sugar and is made with milk. The Hershey's Special Dark cocoa is makes a great mug of cocoa too.
Get even more sinful with a splash or two of Tuaca or Grand Mariner! :D
