  1. Combine the cocoa powder, sugar and a pinch of salt in a saucepan. Mix together. Add in the boiling water and continue to mix.

  2. Turn on medium heat and bring the mixture to a soft boil while you stir. Let it simmer while you stir continuously for about 2 minutes watching that it doesn't scorch. Stir in the milk and vanilla extract, keep stirring and heat until very hot, but do not boil. 

  3. Pour equally into 4 mugs. Add the marshmallows then whipped cream, After you can sprinkle a little bit of chocolate powder on top of the whipped cream.
