Smores Hot Cocoa

Although hot chocolate is more of an autumn and winter kind of thing, on a cool summer’s night a hot chocolate can work wonders. It’s ever so cozy to cuddle up with someone under a blanket, drink hot cocoa and watch the stars twinkling in the night sky. If you want something extra special you can make smores hot cocoa. It adds that little bit of a something to the occasion!

Serves: 1 cup



  1. Turn on the broiler. Place the marshmallows onto a broiler-safe pan. Broil until toasted on top (keep a very close eye on them. I literally stand there and watch until done). Turn the marshmallows over and broil the other side. Remove from the broiler and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat the milk until hot but not boiling (you’ll start to see steam). Whisk in the cocoa and sugar until smooth. Turn off the heat. Whisk in 2 toasted marshmallows and the cookie butter until smooth. Pour into a mug.
  3. Place the chocolate chips into a plastic sandwich bag but leave the bag unsealed. Microwave until soft, roughly 30 seconds. Massage the chocolate until smooth. Make a piping bag by pushing the chocolate into one corner. Cut a hole in the corner and pipe onto the remaining toasted marshmallow. Sprinkle on graham cracker crumbs. Put the marshmallow into the drink and serve immediately.
