Hot Chocolate: Marshmallow or Whipped Cream?
- Chemicalkinetics Nov 23, 2009 07:57 AM
For you people who enjoy hot chocolate or hot cocoa, do you prefer to add marshmallow and whipped cream? If so, which one? and why?
I enjoy hot chocolate in various forms. I like it creamy sometime and I like it thin and chocolaty other times. Between marshmallow and whipped cream, I think I enjoy whipped cream slightly more, but I am ok either way and usually I drink mine without either.
Another thing, why do people insist on using 2% or 1% low fat milk for their hot chocolate if they are going to add whipped cream and marshmallow?
If someone were worried about fat and not sugar, they might go for 1% milk and marshmallows, but whipped cream would make no sense.
For me it depends on the chocolate. For dark chocolate, I prefer whipped cream. For a milk chocolate, I prefer marshmallows.
My hot chocolate is made with skim milk because it's what I keep on hand, but I wouldn't insist on it if someone else were making the drink.
Mmmm, think I must go turn down the a/c and make some hot chocolate now.
