    Muffin Goddess's Note:

    I found this one in the local paper last year, lost it for awhile, and I'm now posting it for safekeeping. This is a little different from the other versions posted here -- no honey, no instant hot cocoa mix, and the chocolate flavor is doubled with cocoa powder and dark chocolate chips. If you are one for sweets with a spicy kick, you can use "The Heat is On" flavor from Peanut Butter and Co in place of the regular peanut butter.

      So, I didn't get a picture of this delicious, super rich hot chocolate because the marshmallows melted and ran down the sides of the cups and it 'twas not a pretty sight. I agree with the previous comment that this is way to sweet, but that can easily be remedied. I will be making this again for sure. Thanks for another great one Muffin Goddess! I'll be sure to snap a pic before I top with marshmallows next time. Made for Spring 2013 PAC.

      OMG this is so rich and so sweet. I would cut back on the sugar next time. Maybe because I used splenda sugar that it turned out so sweet. I also used 2% milk to help with the calorie count. I did not add any of the options as I didn't think it needed any. Thanks. Made for Fall PAC 2011.
