Keep your eye out for locally made mugs. Place dry cocoa ingredients in a clear plastic gift bag; attach the recipe, and arrange inside the mug or a pretty box with wrapped marshmallows.


4 servings


4 cups milk
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
4 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon (optional)
Homemade Mini-Marshmallows


In a medium-size saucepan on medium setting, heat milk until simmering. Whisk in sugar, cocoa powder, chocolate, and cinnamon if you like. Simmer, whisking continuously, until chocolate and sugar are melted and mixture begins to thicken. Divide among four mugs. Sprinkle with Homemade Mini-Marshmallows.
