Step 1

In a large saucepan, combine cocoa powder, sugar, and salt. Gradually stir in the water and simmer over low heat for 6 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Gradually add the half-and-half and heat, but do not allow mixture to boil.

Remove from heat and serve in mugs, topped with mini marshmallows.


You may substitute skim milk for the half-and-half if you want to cut down on the fat in this drink.
