When it comes to uber yummy, super-indulgent, cheat-on-your-diet-worthy treats, Chrissy Teigen's word is law. So widely regarded are her recipes that the funny gal foodie and cookbook author's new website, Cravings, crashed within an hour of its launch last month thanks to such a huge influx of traffic. Casual.
These days, thankfully, things are running smoothly - and Teigen has taken to the site to share tips, tricks, and favorite dishes galore, always finding a way to make them distinctly her own. Take, for example, her seasonally-appropriate (even by L.A.'s 50-degree standards) hot cocoa, which, at first glance, looks like your classic wintertime comfort beverage. Take a closer look, however, and you'll notice Teigen's ingenious secret ingredient that takes the sip from good to, well, magically delicious.

Yes, it is topped with a boozy, salty cream, but what we're obviously talking about here are the cereal marshmallows! The crunchy, colorful little pellets we all remember favoring in our bowls of Lucky Charms rival the fun and flavor of even the puffiest of traditional marshmallows we're used to seeing in hot chocolate. Like, why didn't we think of that?!
Head to the Cravings site for the full recipe (for both kids and grownups) and try the fun topping twist Chrissy herself calls ";as@hdg%hkg SO GOOD!"
