    Happy Day Hot Chocolate with Marshmallows + Love

    Seriously snowy days call for lots of sledding, snowball fights, and snuggling up with a mug of hot chocolate. Aptly known as drinking chocolate, hot chocolate is thicker, richer, and more deeply flavored than it’s sweet brethren hot cocoa. Reach for a few bars of Happy Day Original Dark 70% or even Extremely Dark 85% to make this intensely chocolate flavored and heart-warming drink. Enjoy and remember to do good and smile along the way :) (photo credit Meghan).


    • Makes 4 servings
    • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
    • 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
    • 5 ounces (4 bars) Happy Day Brands Original Dark Chocolate, finely chopped
    • 1 quart (4 cups) whole milk
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • Pinch of salt
    • Marshmallows, whipped cream or cocoa powder, for serving (optional)


    In a small saucepan, whisk together the cocoa powder and brown sugar to break up any lumps in the sugar. Add the chopped chocolate, milk, vanilla extract, and salt.

    Bring the mixture to a simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the chocolate is melted the mixture is smooth and thick, about 5 minutes at a simmer.

    Remove from the heat, pour into mugs and top with marshmallows or whipped cream and a dusting of cocoa for serving.
