Fluffy Hot Chocolate Recipe

Publisher Photo
Melted marshmallows provide the frothy texture that you'll savor in this sweet and speedy warm beverage. They're also what makes this hot chocolate different from (and better than) the instant kind you make from a store-bought mix. Chocolaty and comforting, it's our daughter's favorite.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 1, 2014 Edited Feb. 5, 2014

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!

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.
