French Hot Chocolate Recipe with Toasted Marshmallows


This French Hot Chocolate Recipe uses real chocolate bars for a decadent and thick drinkable chocolate dessert.




  1. Break your chocolate into small pieces.
  2. In a small stockpot, bring your chocolate, cream, milk, sugar, and vanilla to medium heat.
  3. Whisk every minute or so and allow the chocolate to melt and the ingredients to blend.
  4. Meanwhile, warm your mugs by filling them with boiling water. Pour the water out as soon as you are ready to pour the hot chocolate in.
  5. Once the ingredients are blended and bubbles begin to appear on the side, pour into a mug to serve.

How to Serve:

  1. Pile the top of your mug with marshmallows.
  2. Using a creme brulee torch, gently brown the top of the marshmallows. Be gentle treating your marshmallows and torch as you would at a campfire.
  3. Last drizzle with chocolate syrup. Enjoy!

To Store:

  1. Allow your hot chocolate to cool to room temperature. Then place in a mason jar and store in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
