S’mores Hot Cocoa

A simple and pretty twist on your standard hot cocoa, golden toasted marshmallows! Everyone loves a good s’mores so why not enjoy it in a drink version when bonfire season is over!?

A real quick minute under the broiler is all it takes for quick golden toasty marshmallows on top of this simple homemade cocoa. The perfect warm up on a cold winter day! Would also be great with a shot of coffee liqueur!

S'mores Hot Cocoa

Servings 4
Author Laura Doerr


  • 4 cups milk dairy or dairy free
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch of salt
  • marshmallows
  • crushed graham crackers
  • chocolate sauce

Optional additions

  • whipped cream
  • coffee liqueur


  1. In a medium sauce over medium heat, combine milk, water, and sugar and whisk until sugar is dissolved. Whisk in cocoa powder, vanilla, and a pinch of salt. Stir until well blended and heat until it reaches desired drinking temperature.
  2. Divide into oven safe serving mugs, and top with marshmallows. Place under the 'low' setting broiler for 1-2 minutes, leaving the oven cracked and watching constantly. Remove once golden brown, they will turn to burning very quickly, just like a bonfire!
  3. Top with a drizzle of chocolate sauce or hot fudge and crushed graham crackers.

Recipe Notes

I make mine with unsweetened almond milk, super good! Works great with dairy or dairy free milk!
