Simply the best hot chocolate ever. The key is to use a very high quality hot-chocolate mix. One of my favorites comes from Fauchon, the French confectioner. See the Resource Guide in “Simple Stunning Wedding Showers” for more information.
- 4 packages Fauchon hot-chocolate powder (or substitute your favorite brand)
- 1 pint milk
- One 12-ounce can evaporated milk
- Pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
- 20 mini marshmallows for garnish
Pour 1 package hot chocolate powder into each of 4 mugs. In a saucepan, warm the milk and evaporated milk together until the mixture reaches a simmer. Remove from heat, add the cayenne pepper if desired, and stir. Pour milk into mugs, stir, and garnish each mug with 5 mini marshmallows.
