Ah…. There has always been a little debate over whether hot chocolate and hot cocoa are two different things, or one and the same. Well, I’m a bit of a Type-A personality so if you ask me, I would have to take the more obsessive route and say that the type of chocolate used determines the drink’s appropriate moniker. In this case, I’ve used a dark chocolate bar, so “hot chocolate” it is!
4 ounces dark chocolate
1 cup half & half
1 cup milk
1. In a small saucepan set over low heat, bring the chocolate and half & half to a simmer. Gently whisk until melted.
2. Stir in the milk.
3. Transfer hot chocolate to a mug, top with a marshmallow and cocoa powder to serve.
4. Wasn’t that easy? Now go drink!
