|240Sweet Bourbon Brown vs Sugar Cookie|
Of course, given that this is The Chocolate Cult our real focus is on the Decadent Hot Chocolate mix. The instructions on the back label of the bag read "Whisk 4 Tbs of mix into 1 cup of boiling milk for 3 minutes." I measured out the mix and it is approximately 5 servings worth per these instructions. (there are also fondue directions but I didn't do both) Note: In my household we only use skim milk. Alone it is still creamy, a touch dark, and no other flavors, a good basic foundation.
What happens when you add the marshmallows to the hot chocolate?
Finally we added the bourbon brown sugar marshmallows. The first thing I notice is that the bourbon fragrance gets stronger and stronger as the marshmallows melt, something I did not notice with the sugar cookie variety. The intensity of the marshmallows remains very bourbon if you try one before they thoroughly melt. Again stir to make them melt faster. The intensity of flavor change to the hot chocolate depends on how many of the marshmallows you use -- one is a slight change, two is balanced, three is a bit too much. I didn't like these as much as the sugar cookie marshmallows in terms of what they added to the hot chocolate foundation. And yes, if you spotted, it this was my 240Sweet mug I got a few years ago which I still have and still use.
