  • In a large pot, combine milk, chocolate chips, sugar, cocoa powder, vanilla, and salt.
  • Stir with a whisk over low heat until chocolate has completely melted and the milk is warmed through. Don't overheat!
  • Pour into mugs and top with whipped cream and marshmallows.


  • Be careful not to overheat the milk!
  • I used bittersweet chocolate chips, but you can use milk chocolate, dark chocolate...whatever you want!
  • This recipe keeps really well in the fridge.
