This is a basic hot cocoa recipe.

The cocoa is made with unsweetened cocoa powder and it's topped with mini marshmallows. It's especially good for fall and winter days, but I love it any time of the year.

What You'll Need

  • 3 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • miniature marshmallows

How to Make It

    1. Blend cocoa and sugar in a small bowl.
    2. In a medium saucepan, heat milk to scalding. Mix about 1/3 cup of the hot milk into the cocoa and sugar mixture, then pour cocoa mixture into the hot milk in the saucepan; stir until well blended. Stir in vanilla.
    3. Serve the cocoa topped with mini marshmallows.
