Hot Cocoa for My Sweetheart | a Valentine's Day Treat

For a perfect cup of hot cocoa for your sweetheart:
1. Grab 2 squares of your preferred semisweet chocolate and either 1) break it apart with a kitchen hammer or 2) shave the chocolate down. 
2. Once you have a condensed pile of your broken down chocolate (less than 1/4 inch chunks wide), melt either in the a microwave-safe container or in a small sauce pan on the stovetop. Melt it until it is velvety smooth.
3. Pour the melted chocolate into a cup to drink your cocoa out of.
4. Grab 1/4 cup of whole milk and 1/4 cup of half and half.
5. Gradually pour in your whole milk first, and using the MatchaDNA Handheld wireless milk frother you will want to froth the mixture.
6. Once it is mixed, gradually add in your 1/4 cup of half and half and repeat with the frother.
7. If the cocoa mixture is a bit cooler than you prefer after you add in milk/half and half, you can put it in the microwave for 5-10 seconds to heat up (but not much more than that).
8. Top with these adorable, heart-shaped marshmallows that are perfectly festive for Valentine's Day!

Aren't these heart-shaped marshmallows just darling?!

You can buy them online through Amazon!

They make for the perfect, Valentine's Day cup of cocoa!
