I’m a huge fan of earl grey tea. I love the strong flavor profile and how you can’t mistaken the taste for anything else. So I thought it would be perfect to add hot chocolate. Darker chocolates tend to be stronger in taste. But I wanted the earl grey to shine through. So I used white chocolate.

If you’re not a fan of white chocolate, you can substitute with milk chocolate or semi sweet chocolate. You may have to add another earl grey tea bag to get that strong earl grey flavor.

P.S. I obviously cannot toast marshmallows. I thought I could toast them on the stove. Nope. My marshmallow was set on fire. So then this is a result of toasting the marshmallow over a lighter. lol. Any tips on toasting marshmallows in a kitchen?

    There are two ways to toast marshmallows in your kitchen that I know of. One is with a kitchen torch. The second is in the oven under the broiler. You have to turn them to toast all of the sides and keep your eyes on them because they go from nicely toasted to charcoal really fast! lol Good luck! xo
