This rich cocoa sounded so good, that I had to post it here, so that I didn't lose the recipe. I can't wait to try this.

This was awesome!! I scaled it back to serve one and it was great on a cold, rainy day!! I found it to have the perfect balance of sweetness and chocolate flavor for my taste. I loved the added salt, maple syrup and melted marshmallow!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for Went to the Market Tag Game.
