What's better than a mug of hot cocoa in front of a roaring fire on a cold Winter's night? Not much, but this Bourbon Caramel Roasted Marshmallow hot cocoa can certainly kick it up a notch. This steamy, indulgent beverage is so easy to make and it will please all of your holiday guests. I'll show you just what you need to make it!

This bourbon caramel hot cocoa is topped with a giant, roasted marshmallow that will slowly melt into your creamy chocolate drink. Mmmmmm.

You'll need a few supplies (besides what you might already have in your pantry), like a butane kitchen torch or another way to roast your marshmallows, and the flavored Torani syrups I used.

I picked up the Torani Toasted Marshmallow Syrup and the Torani Bourbon Caramel Syrup and started dreaming of yummy ways to use them. They're the perfect way to add some flavor to your favorite beverages this holiday season.

Torani is third generation family owned, since 1925. Their syrups allow people to connect with friends and family by sharing their flavor discoveries. They're made with real, simple ingredients like pure cane sugar & natural flavors and are so easy to use, just add a splash to your favorite drink!

You can pick these up in Walmart stores right in the coffee aisle and there are so many flavors to choose from, even sugar-free varieties. You'll love the authentic coffeehouse flavors.

This hot cocoa is super-easy and will certainly wow your guests this holiday season.

  • 3 c. milk
  • 4 Tbsp. cocoa powder
  • 4 Tbsp. sugar
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 Tbsp. Torani Bourbon Caramel Syrup
  • 2 giant marshmallows

  1. Pour your milk into a saucepan and heat on medium low until steaming.
  2. Whisk in the cocoa, sugar, and salt.
  3. Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla and the bourbon caramel syrup.
  4. Ladel evenly into 2 mugs and top each with a giant marshmallow.
  5. Use a butane torch to roast your marshmallows to your preference.
  6. Serve immediately!

Try to roast your marshmallows as slowly as you can to really heat them through and get that melt-y layer going.

And when they start to melt into your cocoa? Heaven.

There's nothing left to do but sit back in front of the fire and sip this delicious drink! Enjoy!
