Top Review by Chef Buggsy Mate

Made this hot chocolate for a treat. We all loved the addition of the coconut cream however; everyone felt the hot chocolate itself was a little too rich. I did not realize that my daughter had used the rest of the marshmallows yesterday in a dessert crepe recipe she created, so we topped our hot chocolate with a tiny dollop of almond flavored whipped cream...making sort of like an "Almond Joy" in a mug. Made and reviewed for the 49th AUS/NZ Recipe Swap.
