4 servings


  • 3 cups whole milk
  • 1 cup heavy cream 
  • 4 ounces good-quality semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped 
  • Pinch cayenne pepper 
  • Splash vanilla extract 
  • 12 marshmallows 
  • Nonstick cooking spray, optional 


Special equipment: 4 oven-safe cafe au lait bowls

Preheat the broiler. Place 4 oven-safe cafe au lait bowls on a baking sheet.

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. Divide the hot chocolate among the bowls. Top with 3 marshmallows each and place under the broiler. Broil until the marshmallows are golden brown and bubbling, 1 to 2 minutes.

Alternatively, line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Spread the marshmallows on the paper and broil 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer the marshmallows to the hot chocolate. Serve immediately.
