S'mores have always been a summer campfire treat for me, but with this hot cocoa, you can enjoy s'mores for another season! I also love my hot cocoa to be a little more rich and chocolaty, so I never use water, only milk, and I use dark chocolate cocoa powder. Trust me, I am not normally a dark chocolate fan, but I love this!
S'mores Hot Chocolate
-1/2 cup sugar
-1/3 cup dark cocoa powder
-1/2 teaspoon salt
In a bowl, whisk together the sugar, cocoa powder, and salt. This is your hot chocolate mix. What is great about this, is that you can store it in a container and scoop from it whenever you crave hot chocolate.
When ready to make the hot chocolate, take a mug and fill it with milk about 2/3 of the way up. Heat the milk for about 1 minute and 30 seconds. Then, scoop 2 tablespoons of the hot chocolate mix into the mug and stir it in until it dissolves in the milk. For the purposes of this post, I wet the rim of the mug before filling with milk, so that the graham cracker crumbs would stick to the edge.
Next, break off a few little bits of graham cracker and place them in the mug, on top of the hot chocolate. Then, pile as many marshmallows as you wish on top of the graham cracker. I then sprinkled on some more graham cracker crumbs for a little extra crunch!
