Fluffy Hot Chocolate

Have you seen these adorable little marshmallows?!  If not, run run run to Target and grab a bag full of little strawberry-flavored-heart-shaped goodness.

And then come home and make this.

I happened to see this recipe for hot chocolate the same day that I found the marshmallows.  That could only mean one thing - the stars above WANTED me to have this warm snow-day beverage.

So I did.  And you should too.

I will say, however, that I was excited to throw in Christina's addition of cinnamon.  However, that wasn't a great idea considering I used strawberry-flavored marshmallows.  It wasn't bad, but it was a little... off.  So pick one - if you're using regular marshmallows, add the cinnamon for sure.

just barely adapted from Allrecipes, by way of A Mad Men Kitchen
  • 8 teaspoons sugar
  • 5-6 teaspoons baking cocoa
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cup marshmallows
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
In a saucepan, combine the first four ingredients.  Cook and stir over medium heat until the marshmallows are melted, about 8 minutes.  Remove from heat; stir in cinnamon and vanilla.  Ladle into mugs.


  1. Those heart shaped marshmallows are adorable! Glad you liked; I think I'm going to try nutmeg instead of cinnamon another time, or maybe some chile (heard that's good w/ chocolate)

  2. I made this on my Wednesday snowday! This is my go-to recipe for hot chocolate.
