Winter has hit us hard this past week here in Montana! It was 15 degrees outside with wicked winds and below zero nights! I have to say it is a winter wonderland here and it is so unbelievably beautiful it is hard not to stare out the window!
It was our puppies first snow was last week and she was just so excited I was so happy for her! It was honestly the cutest thing I think I have ever seen! * see my instagram feed below for pictures!
All I've been craving lately has been a BIG mug of some creamy hot cocoa! I decided to doctor up my original hot cocoa recipe and take it to a whole new level of winter decadence! Boy, it was so yummy! Christmas has been on my brain lately, and with all the great things on Shopstyle I had to add some below because they are amazing! If you find yourself in love with the goodies below make sure you click on it and it will take you to the site for some guiltless online early shopping!
Imagine the best part of a S'more..... yea the crispy marshmallows, and the best part of hot cocoa....the rich and creamy flavor, combined in a mug and ready to taste! AMAZING!
In a mug of your choice, mix the dry ingredients together
Pour in the milk and stir very well until there are no chunks
Microwave for 30 seconds, remove stir again and place back in for another 30-40 seconds until hot!
Place the mug on a baking sheet and cover the top of the mug with the marshmallows until they are forming a nice bridge on the top of the mug
Put the mug in the oven and watch the marshmallows turn golden in about 2 minutes
Okay here we go!
Pre heat the oven to Broil HIGH:
- 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- 1 cup of any kind of milk you wish (I used sweetened Almond Milk)
- 7 large marshmallows
Remove and enjoy! But be careful its going to be hot and delicious!
