I was going to make crispy cereal marshmallows for Food Friday this week but found out it takes at least 2 days to finish. I'll make and blog about them another day. I made Swiss Miss-style hot chocolate mix instead, recipe inspired by Bravetart of Serious Eats.
Homemade Swiss Miss-style Hot Chocolate Mix
6 ounces dark or bittersweet cooking chocolate, chopped
2 ounces white chocolate, chopped
4 to 6 tablespoons sugar, powdered in a blender
1 cup powdered whole milk (I used Nido)
seeds of half a vanilla pod
1 teaspoon instant espresso, optional
- In the bowl of a food processor, pulse chocolates and powdered sugar 6 times. Add milk, vanilla seeds, and espresso if using; pulse until powdery. Transfer into an airtight jar.
- To make a mug of hot chocolate: In a 4-cup measuring cup, microwave 1¼ cups of water to boiling. Add 4 tablespoons of chocolate mix; stir well until chocolate is dissolved. Use a beater if foamy top is desired. Transfer into a mug and top with mini marshmallows. Enjoy.
