S’more Hot Chocolate, Please!
Replace the campfire with your fireplace and toast some marshmallows with the fam or friends (Google how to do that safely, first). Then drop them on top of graham cracker-encrusted glasses and enjoy some winter camping. This s’mores hot chocolate recipe also fits right into a family board game or movie night. It’s delicious (it calls for honey!), it’s fun to make and eat, and did we mention it’s delicious? It’s also the closest you’re going to get to campfire flavors and the campfire experience for a few months, so maybe set up the tent in the family room, open a window for some cool fresh air, play a YouTube video of forest sounds in the background and dim the lights to mimic a starry sky. The kids will love it, and you don’t even have to worry about bears.
- 6 cups whole milk
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- 4 ounces bittersweet chocolate chips
- 2 tablespoons honey
- ⅓ cup graham cracker crumbs
- 12 marshmallows
- 6 small skewers
In a medium saucepot, heat milk and sugar to simmering over medium heat, about 10 to 12 minutes. Remove from heat; whisk in chocolate chips until smooth.
Meanwhile, place honey on small plate. Invert 6 mugs into honey; slide around until rims are lightly coated in honey. Place graham cracker crumbs in small bowl; twist mug rims into crumbs until coated.
Thread 2 marshmallows onto each skewer. Using kitchen blowtorch, open flame on gas stove, or broiler, lightly toast marshmallows.
Divide hot chocolate between prepared mugs. Garnish with marshmallow skewers and serve immediately.
