The Best Hot Chocolate Recipe EVER!

November is here and so is the chilly weather! One of our favorite drinks during the cold winter months and holidays is the classic go-to: hot chocolate! We searched high and low and found the best recipe ever. Make this after a long day at work or school to relax, or at your holiday party this year to impress all your family and friends! You won't be disappointed by this sweet treat!



  • 4 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup good quality cocoa
  • 1 1/2 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a saucepan combine all ingredients. Cook and stir over medium low heat until the marshmallows are melted, about 10 minutes. (I actually had mine on the stove for about 30 minutes and I just stirred occasionally)
  2. Remove from the heat and pour into mugs.

Easy as that! For the best hot chocolate ever!

The trick in making this rich and thick cocoa was to add the marshmallows directly into the pan while cooking! We recommend using the Ghirardelli Chocolate Sweet Ground Chocolate and Cocoa as your quality cocoa. 

We hope you enjoy your cocoa!
