    Hot Chocolate

    Place the chocolate, bananas and peanut butter in a heat-proof container.

    Bring your milk to a boil and pour over your ingredients.

    Let sit a few seconds, then using a hand-held immersion blender, blend ingredients until smooth; serve immediately.

    To take it to the next level, finish with grape-flavored marshmallows.

    Grape Marshmallows

    Combine juice and gelatin in a bowl and let bloom. Mix confectioners sugar and starch and set aside.

    Combine water, sugar and corn syrup in a sauce pot, and cook until 121 degrees C on a candy thermometer. Meanwhile, use the whisk attachment on a mixer at a medium setting to beat egg white until frothy.

    When the sugar reaches the right temperature, slowly add it to the egg white, and then add gelatin mixture. Beat on high for 15 minutes until thick and coat a cake pan with the starch mixture.

    Pour the finished marshmallow in the pan top with the rest of the starch and let set up in the refrigerator.
