For an adult-friendly version, consider spiking your hot chocolate with a splash of your favorite liqueur, such as peppermint schnapps, Baileys Irish Cream, or a shot of espresso.,
Dressing Up Your Mug
Now, for the pièce de résistance – drop a few of your freshly dipped marshmallows into your hot chocolate mug. Watch as they slowly melt into the rich, velvety liquid, imparting their chocolatey goodness. Garnish with a sprinkle of cocoa powder or a drizzle of melted chocolate for an Instagram-worthy presentation.
