Makes 3 servings
1/4 cup sugar
3 Tbsp. Dutch cocoa powder
1 Tbsp. ground cinnamon
1 Tbsp. imitation vanilla extract
1/8 cup water
2 cups 2% low-fat milk
3/4 cup miniature marshmallows
In a medium saucepan, add sugar, cocoa powder, ground cinnamon, vanilla extract and water. Stir with a wire whisk, vigorously, over medium heat, until a chocolate syrup forms. Add 2% milk. Stir over medium-high heat, continuously, until well heated, careful not to scald the milk on the bottom of the pan. Put 1/4 cup of miniature marshmallows in the bottom of 3 different mugs.
Pour hot cocoa into mugs and serve saying, “Caution-please drink sip this by sipping it very slowly as hot cocoa is served very hot!”
Karen’s Note: Yes, my secret ingredient is the ground cinnamon. Enjoy this recipe on very chilly winter nights. It is also a great hot beverage when camping overnight to become warm and toasty, before retiring to your tent.
