Fizzymint Hot Chocolate Recipe (Dorothy and the Four Corners of Magic)

This rich, creamy hot chocolate has a surprise...a hint of mint!
And as if that isn't delicious enough,
it's topped with a toasted marshmallow whipped cream!


*serves 10-12


6 cups whole milk
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1 (14 oz) can sweetened condensed milk
2 cups milk chocolate chips
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup Andes Chocolate Mints, chopped
2 teaspoons vanilla extract


Pour milk and heavy whipping cream into a large pot set on medium-high heat. Add in the sweetened condensed milk and whisk until well combined. Raise heat to high and let come to a low boil.

Reduce heat to medium and add in milk chocolate chips. Whisk until there are no more chunks and whisk comes up clean. Add in dark chocolate chips and do the same. Repeat for mint chips. Turn heat to low and let simmer for 15-20 minutes. Make topping (recipe follows).

After 15-20 minutes, the chocolate should have thickened up and darkened. Give it a good stir before ladling into serving mugs. Top with the toasted marshmallow whipped cream. Curl up with a good book (hopefully The Topaz Road) and enjoy!

Toasted Marshmallow Topping


20 large marshmallows
2 cups heavy whipping cream (chilled)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 tablespoons powdered sugar


Preheat your oven's broiler (the top cooking device or coil).

Place 20 marshmallows (flat side up) into an oven-safe dish or pan. Set on top rack, right under broiler, and let cook for 3-4 minutes until toasted and brown. Check on them often so that they don't burn. Remove from oven and let cool while you move on to the whipping cream.

Pour the cream into a large mixing bowl. Add vanilla extract. With the whisk attachment on your electric mixer, whisk on high until soft peaks form (or whisk by hand). Turn your mixer off and add in the powdered sugar. Whisk again until slightly firmer peaks form. Now add in the toasted marshmallows (they will be sticky and stretchy). Beat on medium-high until well combined and most of the marshmallows have been broken down into small chunks. Keep chilled until ready to use.
