Hot chocolate with marshmallows is one of those things. Among those that I have tried in my search; Maribelle (too dark & too rich & very very bitter), Williams-Sonoma (not rich enough!), and Godiva (surprisingly not the super chocolaty taste I crave).
My second favorite is my favorite make-at-home hot chocolate... Ina Garten's Barefoot Contessa Sinful Hot Chocolate Mix. Ina's version of hot chocolate has just a touch of espresso which seems to balance the flavor perfectly.
Handcrafted marshmallows are a big trend in stores right now, but they are so expensive! Totally unnessary- they are so easy to make! I use Alton Brown's recipe and I cut them large. They are the perfect finishing touch to a great cup of hot cocoa.
I am going to go curl up on the big chair in our living room with my hot chocolate. Weekends are my favorite! xo Lizzie
