10 minutes before the cook time is done, add the marshmallows.
Pour and serve with any additional desired toppings.

For a smoother hot chocolate, make sure to whisk the hot chocolate vigorously in order to help the chocolate break down. Using high quality chocolate also helps the chocolate to break down faster. It also usually means there are less additives in the chocolate.
If you find that your hot chocolate is still chunkier than you would like, feel free to run it through a wire mesh strainer until it reaches your desired smoothness. Be sure to do this step before you add in the mini marshmallows.
