Homemade Hot Coco in the morning is real treat. Not only does it taste sweet, it brings me right back to my childhood.

Hot Coco with a fresh batch of cubed marshmallow toppers (recipe posted yesterday) today, was the perfect beverage to end this cold and wet week. With fresh marshmallow toppers it is impossible to have just one cup. I found myself topping off my marshmallows a few times before I reached the end of the cup! Bellow is the basic Hot Coco recipe that I use when I want to make Hot Coco from scratch, but most of the time I use William Sonoma Hot Chocolate mix and just warm up my milk on the stove.

As I mentioned in the post yesterday marshmallows keep for weeks, making them a great homemade gift idea. I have come up with two quick options for Hot Chocolate kits, but you can also make smore kits with these delicious treats. I am planning on giving out these mugs/Hot Coco kits to all of Gjelina’s preschool teachers. They are also great to have around the house just in case you need quick gift solutions this Holiday Season. Here is a quick list of super cute mugs that would pair wonderfully with fresh marshmallows and hot chocolate.
