    And in the summer, put it in the fridge and you’ve got chilled dessert.

    Hot chocolate with marshmallows needs a garnish of sprinkled, crushed Graham crackers

    And that is why ladies, with all possible due respect, we leave the cooking to you. We men have an unenviable capacity to make a pigs breakfast out of our over-rated culinary skills.

    I’m opposed to marshmallows in hot chocolate. What I like is hot chocolate poured over a shot of peppermint schnaps and then topped off with whipped cream. Before I was old enough for schnaps, Mom made hot chocolate with cocoa, dried milk powder and STRONG hot peppermint tea. Topped with whipped topping.

    So it’s sugar, with sugar mixed in, and hot liquid sugar poured over it. Why isn’t it topped off with crumbled brown sugar? And maybe some whipped cream for, you know, texture.

    So, he is allowed to use the stove by himself; surprised he is tall enough to put the pot on/off. By 1993, they should have a microwave.

    Perry Como recommends Kraft Miniature Marshmallows.

    The marshmallows hold in the heat, so, when you take a sip, you burn your tongue.

    I buy Dutch chocolate from a baking supply store and make my hot chocolate with that and milk. The only sweetener is the sugar that is naturally in milk. Many/most would find my recipe too tart.

    The marshmallows wreck everything. Here’s my s’mores recipe: Two graham crackers. A piece of your favorite chocolate, Valhrona would be good, that fits exactly between the graham crackers. Heat the resulting sandwich in the microwave for just enough time to soften the chocolate. You can substitute chocolate chips for the bar chocolate. Thin short bread may be substituted for the graham crackers.

    There’s a chain of barbecue joints around here where I’ve eaten at a few times. I’ve never found any real food there that I like, but they have free soft-serve ice cream. If you buy a fountain drink, you can have all-you-can-eat Coke floats. One time I was taken there after work even though I had already had lunch. My coworkers couldn’t believe I was just having floats.
