Melted Hot Chocolate

I bet this could be made with powdered ingredients and such, but I didn’t feel like mixing a powdered cocoa mix. I would have had to find a lot more stuff. I was reading a thread in a forum about hot chocolate, and someone mentioned melting chocolate bars and adding hot milk.

Well. I had chocolate. And I had milk. So….

About 1 oz solid chocolate, broken up
1 T granulate sugar, white or brown
3/4 c milk, warmed
Marshmallows or whipped cream

Put the chocolate in a double boiler. If you don’t have one, rig up a makeshift double boiler by putting water in a pot and putting a smaller pot in the water. Turn the burner to medium-low. Once the chocolate started to melt, add the sugar. After everything is melted together, whisk in the warmed milk. Heat it through, pour into a mug and top with marshmallows. 


Marshmallow Cocoa Topping

This would work well with my Spiced Hot Cocoa Cupcakes.

1 c mini marshmallows
4 squares bakers chocolate, chopped
1/4 c milk
8 oz whipped cream

Cook marshmallows, chocolate, and milk on low heat until melted and well-blended, stirring constantly. Cool 30 minutes. Stir in whipped cream.
