• 2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup Chocolate Mix
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar, (optional)
  • Pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Mini marshmallows, for serving


  1. Combine the milk, chocolate mix, sugar if using, cinnamon and vanilla extract in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring just to a simmer, stirring. Pour into two mugs, top with marshmallows and serve.

Once you’ve made the basic version, try some of these variations:

Chili Chocolate: add a pinch of ground chipotle and a pinch of chili powder.

Almond Chocolate: substitute unsweetened almond milk and add 1/8 teaspoon of almond extract.

Hot Minty Chocolate: add 1/4 teaspoon mint extract

Double Hot Chocolate: add 1 ounce chopped semi-sweet chocolate to the heated milk and stir until melted.
