A cozy mug of hot chocolate while it flurries outside, wrapped in warm blankets on the couch. That’s what Hubs and I did this afternoon while he watched NFL’s RedZone (omg, they never go back to regular TV once subscribed!) and I read my Kindle.
I wish I can take full credit for this delicious, spiced hot chocolate, but… last winter Hubs made me hot chocolate with a “secret” ingredient (cinnamon!) and I never looked back. I make it like this every time and I thought I’d share it with you!
This hot chocolate is so easy to make. All you need is a packet of hot chocolate mix, mug of hot water, splash of milk, a handful of mini marshmallows and a sprinkle of cinnamon. The combination of the milk and melting marshmallows make the hot chocolate creamy, while the cinnamon gives it that indescribable warmth!
- Mix the hot cocoa packet with the hot water.
- Add a splash of milk (and 1/2 a shot of alcohol, if using), stir.
- Top with marshmallows and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
