With winter almost here, it’s the perfect time of year to whip up a delicious, warm sip. My favorite right now is this S’more Hot Chocolate recipe that’s jam-packed with all the festive flavors we crave this holiday season.

First, this tastes like a real big and fluffy s’more. It will instantly take you back to bonfire nights roasting marshmallows and to sticky fingers and cracker crumbs. Needless to say, this is a total crowd pleaser, and I found myself making it for the past couple of Saturday nights. Second, this recipe is super easy and super quick to whip up which is one of my total favorite things! I mean I don’t know about you, but when I’m craving s’mores hot chocolate, chances are I’m craving it right now. SO I especially appreciate that this is one of those quick recipes that you can have ready in a couple of minutes.

Most hot chocolate recipes only ask you to top your chocolate with mini marshmallows, and while this is delicious and something that I actually do, with this one the secret to the extra s’more flavor is fluff. That and adding real chocolate to the mix as opposed to only cocoa powder. The result is this incredibly thick and velvety hot chocolate that’s just to die for.

Here’s the recipe…
