I love cocoa and this spicy delicious treat certainly does not disappoint. Another winner for my friend Lavender Lynn. Rich, thick, smooth, perfectly sweetened, wouldn't change a thing, the spice ratio was spot on. We enjoyed this cocoa very much. It is freezing here and we have made it several times. Of course today, when I wanted to take a photo, there is no marshmallow creme or even marshmallows left in the house, so I garnished your treat with whipping cream. Thanks for sharing a recipe that we will be enjoying for the rest of the winter.
This was good, just a little too sweet for me though. It does have a very rich flavor. If I make it again, I will reduce the amount of sugar. Made this for the family for Christmas morning, it was a nice treat, thanks for posting it here. I have the cookbook that this recipe is in and have enjoyed several recipes from it.
The marshmallow creme made this rich, full of flavour and decadent and the nutmeg and cinnamon were nice additions to the mix. Please see my Rating system: This was very simple to make and made a wonderful cocoa treat on a day when I walked in the door after long day at work on a day when the wind was bitingly cold and I was tired. Thanks!
