Reviews for Fluffy Hot Chocolate
"We upped the chocolate and sugar a bit to make it a little more chocolaty. This is always a hit and so easy to make. The kids love it. I'm a big fan of a little dash of cinnamon in my cup. Definitely our go to hot chocolate recipe."
"Much better than store bought! The melted marshmallows added a lot and it looked pretty since it was so fluffy."
"This was creamy delicious....I would agree that the melted marshmallows are a hit in this recipe. I would also agree to add more cocoa next time as the chocolate flavor was mild. I did use an off brand cocoa so that may be the reason.*** I just made this again and added two extra teaspoons of cocoa....perfect now. If I continue to use off brand cocoa I will use 6 teaspoons of cocoa. A top shelf cocoa, I will stick to 4 until I know the flavor."
"A really good hot chocolate that is a snap to make. I did alter it a tiny bit. I added a about 2tsp more cocoa powder and a pinch of salt to cut the sweetness and enhance the flavors. Everyone was very pleased with it during our arctic blast!"
"This was amazing! Great tasting and I can't bring myself to drink regular store bought coca ever again!"
"I love hot chocolate from scratch. This is a great basic recipe that you can easily commit to memory. I am used to adding a little sugar & cocoa until it tastes right - these measurements make it simpler."
"My daughter often asks me to make this special beverage for her. Been following this recipe for many years."
"Was very good. I added more cocoa too,1/2 tsp at time. My marshmallows didn't melt. I think to old. I will try again"
"This was very pleasant! I think next time I will add more cocoa to boost the chocolate flavor."
"This was a great start for me to create my perfect cocoa. I couldn't give it 5 stars because I ended up changing quite a bit. But the idea of melting the marshmallows into the cocoa was great, and for that, 4 stars! Thanks!"
