Fluffy Hot Chocolate


It's quickly becoming a tradition in the Mad Men kitchen to have a mug of hot cocoa after playing in or shoveling snow.  We've drunk a lot of hot chocolate in the past few weeks.

Today I had the desire to make from scratch. I found this recipe on allrecipes.  It was highly rated, I had all the ingredients; yippie!

A tried and true Swiss Miss fan, I but those boxes like crazy when they go on sale at like 79 cents a box.  But this is even cheaper, and has all ingredients you'd recognize--cocoa, sugar, milk... the only not really REAL ingredient is the marshmallows (but, be honest.  You know you're putting those marshmallows into the Swiss Miss anyway ;)  )

This was so easy and so tasty.  It got a thumbs up from the hubby and The Boy asked for seconds.  Hubby even saved the leftovers for another time.


Fluffy Hot Chocolate; slightly adapted from allrecipes
  • 8 teaspoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons baking cocoa
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon


  1. In a saucepan, combine the first four ingredients. Cook and stir over medium heat until the marshmallows are melted, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla and cinnamon. Ladle into mugs.

Oh man, I'm out of marshmallows - or else I'd be making this right this second!
