How to Make It

Step 1    

Place the chocolate chips and the sugar in a heat-resistant bowl.

Step 2    

Heat the milk in a medium saucepan to very hot but not boiling.

Step 3    

Take a ladle of hot milk and pour over the chocolate and sugar. Whisk until smooth and melted

Step 4    

Now, add the chocolate sauce to the remaining milk in the sauce pan. Heat the mixture for a few more minutes until it simmers and whisk occasionally.


If you are using the marshmallows for garnish in your hot cocoa, reduce your sugar accordingly to 1 1/2 tablespoons.
