4 ounces good-quality semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped 

Pinch cayenne pepper 

Splash vanilla extract 

12 marshmallows 

Nonstick cooking spray, optional 

Directions

Special equipment:
4 oven-safe cafe au lait bowls
  1. Preheat the broiler. Place 4 oven-safe cafe au lait bowls on a baking sheet.
  2. Combine the milk and cream in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over low heat. Add the chocolate and whisk until smooth. Stir in the cayenne and vanilla.
