It was a cold and stormy night…That’s how all the classic mystery stories begin, right? Well, this piping beverage is no mystery. Three simple ingredients plus a few decorative accents and you’ve got a yummy treat to cuddle.
2 cups milk, whatever type you prefer. I used 1%, and the drink was still pretty rich.
1 cup semi-sweet baking chips, use the best quality available. I used Ghirardelli.
2 teaspoons Agave syrup
marshmallows and graham crackers for topping it off.
1. Over medium-high heat in a small sauce pot, warm the milk until a skin begins to form on the top, but do not let it boil. This takes about 5 minutes.
2. Vigorously stir in the chocolate chips, so that they melt and do not clump together.
3. Lower the heat and add the Agave syrup, a necessary step to avoid the bitterness of the baking chips.
4. Let the flavors melt together for a minute if you can wait, then pour it into mugs and tops with giant marshmallows and crumbled graham crackers.
P.S. While we are on the topic of super fantastic chocolate. Check out this stuff! It’s all natural cocoa peanut butter. We tried it on a graham cracker as bedtime treat. So super good, it’s like a those cup-shaped chocolates that I love. Check out the Peanut Butter & Co website for more flavors and a store near you that sells it.
