Because of the rainy, cold weather, I thought I would share how to make homemade hot chocolate. Specifically, white hot chocolate. Once you try this, you won't go back to packaged hot cocoa mix. The taste doesn't even compare! To make a single cup of hot chocolate, all you need is one cup of milk, a third cup of chocolate chips (I chose white chocolate) and a marshmallow.
Now here are the steps:
Take a small pot and fill it with about an inch of cold tap water. Bring the water to a simmer, then place a heatproof bowl on top of the pot. You want to make sure the bowl is over the water, not touching it. Pour the milk into the heatproof bowl. Once the milk is warm, add the chocolate chips and stir. Keep stirring until the chocolate melts. While you are heating your milk mixture, take your large marshmallow and cut into smaller pieces. Trust me, you want to use scissors for this and not a knife. Just be sure to wash your scissors before and immediately after cutting your marshmallow! Once the chocolate is melted into your milk, continue heating until it has reached the desired level of heat.
Finally, pour into a mug, add your cut up marshmallow and enjoy while listening to the rain!
