This is a very rich drink and 8 oz is more than enough to satisfy a craving and fill you up. I'll often cut the recipe in half. I created this one night with a serious chocolate craving that just would not go away. Now a half of this is what I turn to when I just have to have a rich chocolatey dessert.

Recipe Ingredients for Rich Christmas Hot Cocoa

2 envelope Hot Cocoa Mix
1 cup(236 g) Vitamin D Milk
4 pieces Marshmallows
4 3/5 grams Cinnamon, Ground
2 tsp Nutmeg, Ground
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 canes Candy Canes

Recipe Directions for Rich Christmas Hot Cocoa

  1. 1) Heat 8 oz milk until fairly hot in a large microwavable safe cup. (2 minutes in my microwave.)

  2. 2) Stir in two packets Nestle Rich Milk Chocolate Hot Cocoa Mix. I often have to smoosh the powder bits onto the side of my cup to dissolve it.

  3. 3) Add in one (or 1/2) crushed (or broken up) candy cane.

  4. 4) Add cinnamon and nutmeg to taste. I tend to do two pinches cinnamon and two shakes of nutmeg.

  5. 5) Add a tsp (or more to taste) vanilla extract.

  6. 6) Add four marshmallows.

  7. 7) Reheat 40 seconds.

  8. 8) Stir vigorously. I like to wait to drink the cocoa until the candy cane and marshmallows are completely melted. This requires very hot cocoa.
