Cardamom Hot Chocolate

This single-serving toasty beverage is a great way to stay warm when the temperatures plummet! Pour it in your favorite Scout tumbler and it’ll stay piping hot for hours.  
  • 3/4 cup of milk or milk alternative (we used almond milk in ours) 
  • 1 packet of your favorite powder hot chocolate mix
  • Favorite chocolate candy bar
  • Spoonful of cardamom 
  • Pinch of salt
  • Handful of mini marshmallows! 
  1. Gather ingredients and grab your Scout mug!
  2. Heat the milk (or milk alternative) in a saucepan. Use more milk or add water for a thinner consistency. The milk should be hot, but not boiling.
  3. Add your cocoa to the saucepan and mix with the warming milk until all the clumps have dissolved. 
  4. Add the spoonful of cardamom - more or less to taste! 
  5. Prepare the toppings. Break up the candy bar into small pieces. 
  6. Transfer the warming cocoa to a pitcher and pour into your Scout mug (or pour directly into your Scout if you’re talented like that!) 
  7. Top with marshmallows, chocolate bits and a pinch of salt. 
  8. Enjoy!
