Hey Everybody! Who said toasted marshmallows are only for the summer! They are just as good in a big cup of hot chocolate in the winter as they are oozing out of s'mores by a bonfire in the summer! And the best part is, you can let your oven do all the work and have toasted, golden marshmallows in about a minute! So easy and delicious! There used to be a coffee shop near our house that my husband and I used to go to all the time, that had the best hot chocolate. You could choose whether you wanted milk, white or dark chocolate as the base, then you could pick all different flavors to add in, like hazelnut, almond, vanilla or peppermint, and choose what toppings you wanted on top! It was a sad, sad day when they closed the coffee shop a couple of moths ago, and I still miss their creamy, rich and decadent hot chocolate! Luckily, it's not too hard to make yourself a big cup, just like this one, at home!
TOASTED MARSHMALLOW HOT CHOCOLATE
YOU WILL NEED
Hot chocolate (my two favorite recipes are THIS Nutella Hot Chocolate
and THIS decadent Hot Chocolate for Two!)
Mini marshmallows (you could use regular sized ones too)
Make your hot chocolate as usual and pour into your favorite mug! Then, prepare your toasted marshmallows. I set my oven to the broil setting, then put a couple mini marshmallows on a baking sheet (I line mine with parchment paper) and let them cook under the broiler for just about a minute or even less, watch them carefully because they toast VERY quickly! Then, simply place the marshmallows in your hot chocolate and enjoy!
