For a kid- and adult-friendly finish, top the hot chocolate with large toasted marshmallows that you can (safely) brown over a gas burner until a golden-brown color on the outside or under the broiler for less than a minute. The cocoa adds a deeper chocolate flavor, but can always be skipped if you don’t have any on hand. You can use any kind of high-quality milk chocolate bars that you prefer.



  • 4 cups 2% milk
  • 1 tbsp Unsweetened Cocoa
  • 2 Hershey Milk Chocolate Bar
  • 1 pinch Salt


1 Over low heat, warm the milk until small bubbles form but before the milk begins boiling. Be sure to not scald the milk or it won't have the best flavor.
2 Then add salt, cocoa, chocolate, and stir in until melted and combined.
3 Remove from the heat and serve.
