Hot Chocolate and Toast

Is there anything better than a big mug of hot cocoa when it’s cold out?  You might as well add a little snack on the side too.  Try this Hot Chocolate and Toast.  It may sound like an odd combination, but there really is nothing like buttery toast dipped in homemade hot chocolate brimming with marshmallows to warm you right up.

Well now that Thanksgiving is over let’s get cozy and ready for Christmastime.  That also means here in the Bottom Left of the Mitten at any moment we can be visited with the dreaded 4 letter word: S-N-O-W.  Now don’t get me wrong I love snowy days until about January then I’m done with it.  However Michigan does not listen to me and the last few years it can snow March-March I say!  So why not cozy up with a warm bowl of soup.  Or go out and play it then come home to a piping hot cup of homemade hot chocolate.

As a kid Winter was racing down the biggest hill in our area, Kincheloe Hill, on a bobsled that had *gasp* real metal skis on it.  My brother and I would build igloos brick by brick and then sit in it for hours.  No matter what the wintertime activity was when we were finally forced to come in and peel off the wet layers full of ice balls we would then sit down with one of my favorite treats.  The best way to warm up was a big mug of hot chocolate brimming with gooey marshmallows and buttery toast on the side to dip in it.

This hot chocolate could not be simpler.  Forget ever buying a packet again all you will want to make sure to keep on hand is some sugar, milk and really good cocoa powder.

How to make Hot Chocolate and Toast:

In a medium saucepan add the milk and turn it on to medium heat.  Now to the milk whisk in the sugar, cocoa powder and vanilla.

Keep whisking and cook the cocoa for 5 minutes.

Turn off heat.

Now it’s time to toast the bread.  Slather on LOTS of butter.  Split the milk between 2 cups.  Top with marshmallows.

And here you are…..

    This is what my mom always made for us on snow days. We’d often sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top of the toast as well. Great memories!

      Cinnamon & sugar would make this so good too. Love it with lots of melting butter.

      I agree! Nothing like a big mug of cocoa even if you don’t dip the toast. Thank you Ashley!

    This looks like the perfect warm and cozy breakfast. I’m totally a toast eater. I’ve never made hot chocolate from scratch, but this sounds so simple and delicious! I’ll have to give it a shot!

    I didn’t know anyone else ever did this! My mom made it for us as an afternoon snack once in a blue moon during the winter. She just heated chocolate milk to a near scald and added the marshmallows. Yum! Melty marshmallows clinging to buttered toast!
