The Best Hot Chocolate...Ever

Friday, January 21, 2011

Occasionally I share recipes, but try to limit the ingredients to things that can be grown like pesto, apple crisp, blueberry smoothies, and strawberry preserves.  This recipe, however, was too good to keep to myself.

If you like s'mores and
hot chocolate,
you are going to love this!

It is called s'mores hot chocolate and chances are, once you try it, you will want s'more, tee-hee. 

This recipe is from Southern Lady Magazine.

S'mores Hot Chocolate 

2 cups heavy whipping cream
1-4oz. bar semi-sweet chocolate chopped (I recommend Ghiradelli because it's the best)
4 cups milk
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1-8oz. container frozen non-dairy whipped topping thawed
1-7oz. jar marshmallow creme
1 cup graham cracker crumbs

Garnish: crushed graham crackers, chocolate shavings

1.  In a large saucepan, combine cream and chocolate over medium heat, whisking constantly until chocolate is melted.  Add milk, sugar, and vanilla, whisking until smooth.  Bring to a simmer, stirring frequently, do not boil.

2.  In a medium bowl, combine whipped topping and marshmallow creme.  Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy.  Add graham cracker crumbs, beating until well combined.  Spoon or pipe cream mixture on top of hot chocolate.  Top with additional crushed graham crackers and chocolate shavings, if desired.
