I created this recipe at the end of hot chocolate season last year and have seriously been anxiously awaiting to share during a more appropriate weather situation. With temperatures in the who-knew-my-face-could-get-chapped-range, this is the perfect time to unveil this hot fudgy drink.
It has all of the qualities that make hot chocolate so delicious, but with a complimentary fudgy flavor. It increases the richness of the drink, without making it too sweet or thick. The light, airy marshmallow whipped cream adds a hint of relief from the chocolate overload and rounds out the sweet. It reminds me of drinking a brownie or hot fudge sundae.
Last night after Willy went to bed, I made a quick batch and started reading a recent thrift shop grab, The Last American Man by Elizabeth Gilbert. It was glorious.
