This is a family favorite year round, but most especially in Autumn and winter. It's rich chocolaty taste isn't too sugary tasting so you get the full chocolate flavor. The marshmallows are fun. It's to easy to whip up. Three scoops hot water, kettle water and milk! Simply divine and bone warming! I like that there are not little packages to deal with. I transfer into a tall jar to sit out on the counter so anyone can make some whenever they want. This is the best hot chocolate for its price point, as well go through so much, it's cost effective. It makes the most perfect quick hot chocolate.
