Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows

A delicious hot chocolate drink to make when the weather gets cold.

Hot Chocolate with Marshamallows

A stormy rainy day here in Krakow was all I needed to make this delicious hot chocolate drink.

How I enjoy watching the storm from inside the house! I can sit for hours looking at the thunder and rains.

And given that it was so easy to get this together, it was a no-brainer to make this and sip while watching the storm. Try this hot chocolate with or without marshmallows the next time it rains or snows outside.

Ingredients & Instructions

You will need:

Milk: Just your regular milk.

Dark Chocolate: I have used dark chocolate with 50% cocoa. You can change the chocolate according to your preference. It doesn’t necessarily have to be baking/cooking variety of chocolate. You can use any dark chocolate bar from the grocery store.

Cocoa Powder: I have used a spoonful of the regular cocoa powder that we use for cakes and cookies.

Vegan Marshmallows: You will find these marshmallows which are made without gelatin. I prefer to use these. Though these are optional and I do not prefer them personally, but my daughter likes them so here we are with marshmallows in hot chocolate. #momthings

The instructions for making a hot cuppa are as easy as boiling milk!

  1. I have used 250ml milk. You can double/triple this recipe according to the number of people. Heat the milk in a saucepan. It is not necessary to bring it to boil.
  2. Measure 50 grams of dark chocolate which is roughly 9 squares for my bar of dark chocolate which I picked from the grocery store.
  3. As the milk starts heating, add the dark chocolate and a spoonful of cocoa powder and mix well. Also, the sugar.

  4. Heat the milk till the chocolate is melted. Pour in a heat safe glass and put some marshmallows.
  5. You can let the marshmallows sit in the hot chocolate for few minutes so they kind of melt and form a “cloud” over the hot chocolate.

Tips:

  1. If you want a darker flavour of chocolate, make this with only 200ml of milk.
  2. If you like lighter chocolate flavour, skip the cocoa powder and use only dark chocolate.
  3. Make different flavours by using different extracts like hazelnut, mint or hints of powdered spices like red chilli powder, cinnamon or star anise.
