  • 4 cups milk
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ¼ cup good quality cocoa
  • cup miniature marshmallows
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a saucepan combine all ingredients. Cook and stir over medium-low heat until the marshmallows are melted, about 10 minutes. (I actually had mine on the stove for about 30 minutes and I just stirred occasionally)
  2. Remove from the heat and pour into mugs.
