Hot Chocolate Recipe

January 12, 2016
Those cold nights are looming. One of our favorite perks about winter is drinking copious amounts of hot chocolate. A delicious cup of hot chocolate (don’t forget the whipped cream) can melt the thoughts of snow from your mind. There isn’t a better way to chase away the Chicago chill than by sipping a mug of hot chocolate. Now we don’t ALWAYS drink hot chocolate, but when we do, it’s this recipe. Stay warm through the ahead cold winter nights with this yummy recipe from the Minimalist Baker. An adorable mug from VC creates the ultimate experience of coziness and warmth.
Hot chocolate is like a hug. So enjoy this rich hug from your friends at Vintage Charm! Stay warm :)

- 2 cups milk, any kind
- 1 cup water (or use 3 c milk)
- ¼ cup cocoa powder
- 2 Tbsp light chocolate syrup
- 2 Tbsp sugar
- 1/4 tsp non-bitter stevia (or add 1-2 Tbsp more sugar to taste)
- pinch salt
- graham crackers, crushed (for lining rim)
- ½ cup marshmallows
  1. Preheat oven to low broil and move oven rack to the second from the top (high enough up to broil your marshmallows). Place baking sheet on rack.
  2. Heat milk and water in a saucepan over medium heat until warmed through - about 5 minutes. Be careful not to overheat or scald.
  3. Add cocoa powder, chocolate syrup, sugar, stevia and salt and whisk vigorously until thoroughly combined.
  4. Meanwhile, take a few marshmallows and rub them around the top of your mugs so the graham crackers will stick. Then, dip mug in graham cracker crumbs until well lined. You could also add some graham cracker crumbs to the bottom of your mug for extra graham flavor.
  5. Pour in hot chocolate and top with ¼ cup marshmallows each. Carefully set mugs on the baking sheet in the oven and broil marshmallows until browned, watching carefully as to not let them burn.
  6. Carefully remove from the oven with a towel and serve with holders or a small towel to protect hand from heat (they should cool quickly for handling). Top with a drizzle of chocolate syrup and extra graham cracker crumbs for serving (optional).
