Home Made Hot Chocolate on a Very Rainy Afternoon

Doesn’t that just sound perfect?

Baseball practice was not only rained out this afternoon, it was hailed out. So my son and I arrived home soaked to the bone and very cold. In my house, there’s only one antidote for this condition: home made hot chocolate.

Home made hot chocolate with marshmallows

Of course you can boil some water and add some powder and mix, but making your own takes hot chocolate to a whole new level. The extra five minutes of work are well worth the very happy faces of the kids who get to experience hot chocolate as it really should be – thick, chocolatey and ultra-yummy.



100 g (4 oz) semi-sweet or dark chocolate chopped up

Melt chocolate and sugar in the milk

¼ cup sugar

5 cups of milk

10 marshmallows or many mini-marshmallows (optional but very yummy)

How to do it

1. In a medium-sized saucepan, add the chocolate, sugar and ¾ cup of milk. While stirring, bring to the boil.

2. Add the rest of the milk and heat until hot but not boiling.

3. Ladle into mugs and add 2 marshmallows to each mug.

Makes about 5 cups of hot chocolate. Prepare yourself to make seconds!
