Hershey’s Special Dark S’mores Hot Chocolate

You’re never too old to enjoy s’mores! This campfire treat is remagined here as hot chocolate, which is somewhat less messy but still just as tasty as the marshmallow/chocolate/graham cracker sandwiches. We love Hershey’s Special Dark chocolate and cocoa for their intense, complex flavors which play nicely off the super sugary high notes of the fluffy marshmallows.
