Recipe { S’mores Hot Chocolate }

There’s nothing quite like a warm cup of hot chocolate in the wintertime. Add a cozy blanket, a crackling fireplace and a good book, and we have a winning combination!

I love the special holiday drinks from Second Cup and Starbucks, but I get disappointed at the thought of them not being available anymore after the holidays. So I set out to re-make one of my favorites, the S’mores hot chocolate from Second Cup. It’s the perfect way to combine a summer favorite with the wintery cold.

Preparation time: 10 minutes

Serves: 1

Ingredients

  • 1 Cup of milk (or almond milk)
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 cup small marshmallows
  • Whipped cream
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp ground graham crackers

Preparation

  1. Over medium heat and with a whisk, continuously stir the milk, sugar and cocoa powder until warm and combined.
  2. Add ¾ Cup of marshmallows and continue to stir until fully dissolved.
  3. With your finger (after you’ve washed your hands!) put some honey around the rim of your cup, about an inch all around. Pour the graham crackers crumbs in a small plate. Turn over the cup with the honey rim and cover the rim with the graham crumbs.
  4. Pour in cup and decorate as you wish! You can add marshmallows or whipped cream, or both!
