Butterscotch Hot Chocolate Mix

A rich chocolaty base with the sweet molasses-y flavor of the butterscotch topped off with some ooey-gooey marshmallows makes a perfect little holiday drink to enjoy along with your favorite movies!

Hot chocolate has to be one of my favorite holiday time drinks be it one that's loaded with marshmallows or spiked with spiced rum. It was always the preferred drink on a cold winter's day snuggled up in front of the TV watching our favorite holiday movies.


But this version of hot chocolate was inspired by one of my best friends who is obsessed with butterscotch. It was during her pregnancy that she kept going on about her love for butterscotch ice cream over a cup of delicious hot chocolate that brought about this delicious creation, butterscotch hot chocolate.

Here my recipe for that perfect hot chocolate mix to enjoy this holiday season.



Ingredients


• ½ cup granulated sugar

• ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder

• ½ cup skim milk powder

• ⅓ cup dark chocolate chunks + mini butterscotch chips (You can leave out the butterscotch chips or substitute for any other flavor you like. Just be sure to not exceed ⅓ as this will make the hot chocolate excessively sweet)

• ⅓ cup marshmallows (I used the minis)

Directions


To make the hot chocolate, combine the sugar, cocoa powder, milk powder, and chocolate chunks. Add in about 3 to 4 tablespoons of the mix to one cup of hot water. Top with marshmallows and whip cream and enjoy!
