To get started, break the chocolate bar into small pieces. (Parents should do this part because a sharp knife may be needed.) Let your child add the chocolate bar to a pan.
Help your child measure out the milk and cup of sugar. Add to the pan.
Use a plastic spoon to scrape the sticky seeds from the vanilla bean. Add to the pan, along with the cinnamon stick.
Add a pinch of salt and place the pan on the stove. Heat the ingredients under low heat, stirring constantly with a whisk to avoid burning, until chocolate is melted. Be careful not to burn the milk. (Parents should do this part.)
While you're stirring, have your child add a cinnamon stick to each mug.
Carefully pour the chocolate mixture into each mug. Your child can add three or four miniature marshmallows to each mug before serving.
Dora takes the cake. And in this case, she IS the cake!
