  • 250 ml milk
  • 1 tbs cocoa powder
  • 1-2 tsp honey or maple syrup
  • Few drops vanilla extract
  • Squirty cream (optional)
  • 2 marshmallows
  • 1 matchmaker chocolate stick
  • edible marker pens


  • Place the milk in a small saucepan and heat gently, stirring regularly.
  • Once the milk is warm, add the cocoa powder and stir until completely combined and smooth. Add maple syrup or honey to sweeten and a few drops of vanilla extract.
  • Continue to stir until all the ingredients are combined and the mixture is hot, but not boiling.
  • If adding marshmallow snowman, prepare by drawing a snowman face on one marshmallow and buttons on another. Snap a matchmaker chocolate stick in half for the arms.
  • Pour the chocolate into a mug, top with squirty cream and pop the snowman marshmallow on top, poking the ‘arms’ into the cream on either side.
  • Serve immediately.
