Favorite Winter Drink

Aaliyah’s Famous Hot Cocoa


  • One pack of Nestle hot chocolate mix
  • ¾ of a cup of milk or water
  • Two tablespoons of french vanilla creamer
  • Mini Marshmallows
  • A spoon
  • A lighter (optional)


  1. Starting out with your ¾ cup of water or milk, pour into a coffee mug, and set in the microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds until it boils.
  2. Be careful to take the glass mug out of the microwave because it will be hot, and set down on the counter. Take your spoon out and set it next to the cup as well.
  3. Get the Nestle packet, and slowly pour into the coffee mug, and begin to gently stir to mix the mixture together.
  4. Next, measure out 2 tablespoon full of your french vanilla creamer, and gently pour into the cup of hot cocoa and mix until blended together well enough.
  5. Once you feel as if you’ve had enough of everything, you can add in your marshmallows to the top of the cup, or just a few if you don’t like a lot.
  6. The lighter part is optional, but if you would like your marshmallows (I recommend), then you can burn the tops of the marshmallows in the cup, to complete your delicious drink.
