The BEST hot chocolate with homemade marshmallows

It’s so grey and miserable in Melbourne. We needed pepping up. Hot chocolate (see the steam?) made it better.

One of my very bestest recently came to Melbourne and because she knows me deeply, brought me this drinking chocolate.

For the first time since we lived in Italy (and despite numerous attempts) I was able to replicate the thick, delicious hot chocolate we had there.

So thick, you can almost stand a spoon up in it.

And if not a spoon, then a big, fat homemade marshmallow.

I KNEW this silicone mould

(bought despite protests from handsome husband along the lines of “but what will you use it for?” – as if that’s ever stopped me) would come into its own.

Also, I’ve decided that cups just don’t cut it. It’s warm bol au chocolat for us.

Yep, whole bowls full.

    • Well, it is kind of cosy. And I do relish winter for all its hot choc warm blanket-ness…but I saw cherry blossom stems at the market today and I keened a little for Spring. That said, going to slow braise and snuggle in to enjoy the rest of these cold days. Hope you’re enjoying an inversely proportionate warm and light summer. xx

  1. I just found your site when I pinched a picture you posted back in 2010 of a beautiful bowl of lemons. I have shamelessly placed it in Spain on a friend’s dining room table where I hope it will help encourage holiday makers to rent my friend’s apartment. It’s under the townhouse gallery:

    Not satisfied with getting free imagery without permission, I am now here, reading an up-to-date entry and demanding a recipe for those delicious home-made marshmallows! Please? They look gorgeous!

    Plus I wanted to say what a lovely writing style you have – I’ve only been subscribed 5 minutes and I’ve already been laughing my socks off. Thank you.

    • I presume that means I’ll get a large discount when I stay at your friend’s place? 😉 Looks lovely and makes me long for the Med. I will post the marshmallow recipe very soon. And thank you for your lovely comment. Comments really do make my day. I’m glad you’re enjoying reading my ramblings – and getting a laugh to boot.
