Candy Bar Hot Cocoa

No–that is not a big ice cube in my cup…it’s a chocolate marshmallow. You should be so jealous. Truly.

So, let’s just say you’re in the mood for a nice warm cup of hot chocolate. As you look in the cupboard, you realize that you are out of ye old “Swiss Miss.” No problem, you think. We’ll just do the back woods thing and make it from scratch. Fine…until you open the cocoa canister and find that there is only a dusting left at the bottom. Now what?!

But wait! What’s this? Could it be a couple of 3 Musketeers bars in the back there–hiding out for that certain craving that you get at 10:30pm sometimes?

That’s all you’re going to need my friend. Wait’ll you read this.

Candy Bar Hot Cocoa


1½ cups chopped 3 MUSKETEERS® Bars
3 cups lowfat milk
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus more for dusting
2 tablespoons whipped cream


1. Combine the candy with the milk and ground cinnamon in a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat, stirring constantly until the candy is completely melted.
2. Pour into mugs. Add a cinnamon stick–if you like, and top with a small dollop of whipped cream–or one of those gigantic marshmallows from William Sonoma. Sorry. I love them. Dust with a sprinkling of cinnamon.

As you sip try to avoid giggling your head off at your own decadence.

Yeah, good luck with that.

  1. ANd what a great way to use up that Halloween candy, or any other holiday candy that you have lying around. In the fall the schools always have parades and throw out SO much candy, and 3 Musketeers is the last one that I will eat. Now I know how to put them to good use. Thanks.

  2. Seriously? Ooooh, I’m going to come raid your candy bag some day. I love them–especially frozen. Yummmmm!

  3. Give me a Snickers any day and I am a happy camper. A Snickers and a Mountain Dew, what more can I say………..

  4. John loves hot chocolate. He will have to try this. I love the new background! 😉
