Hot Cocaccino

Nothing better for a cold and snowy day where a blizzard is going on outside your house.

Very easy to make and most folks have all the fixings in their pantry.  

A lot better and cheaper than those trendy coffee shops too!

Hot Cocaccino
  • 2 pkgs hot cocoa mix (like Swiss Miss)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup half and half or light cream
  • 1 tsp instant coffee or instant espresso
  • 1/2 cup mini marshmallows
  • 1/4 cup chocolate syrup (I used U-Bet)
  • whipped topping or whipped cream for garnish
  • sprinkles or sifted cocoa for garnish

Heat milk and half and half in medium saucepan until very hot; remove from heat.  Add hot cocoa mix and instant coffee.  Stir well and pour into mugs or cups.

Top with mini marshmallows, then drizzle chocolate syrup over marshmallows.  Top with whipped topping and spinkles/cocoa powder.

Makes 2 servings.

Just Like Those Coffee Bars!

SO PRETTY... I kinda hope I get more snow so I can make one of these tomorrow morning while sitting around reading Food Blogs!

Hi Rachel, I was sitting there this past Friday, watching the snow coming down and though of these, made them, and put them up. Nothing is better than having one of these while watching the snow fall, in your jammies, of course, and looking at food pics!!!

i thought this was a milkshake and it reminded me of my pretend milkshakes i used to make using my mother's Alba Fit n Frosty packs...I then moved on to hot cocoa packs...this makes me want to try it hot...and goopy. Yum!

LOL Jessica--I remember Alba77 (and we are dating ourselves :) ) Anyway, I got this idea during a snowstorm in early February and thought this would be good--and use a freebie pack of hot cocoa I got on a store coupon. Enjoy!
