Camp Crystal Lake Fireside Cocktails Recipe


  • 10 oz. dark chocolate, chopped (I had 90% cocoa which is very bitter and needed a a lot of sugar to sweeten it, but you can use whatever chocolate you prefer).
  • 4 cups milk
  • 2 Tbsp. Glossop’s Smoked Syrup
  • 6 Tbsp. brown sugar (you cand use white but I like the flavor of brown sugar and be sure to use less if using a sweeter chocolate!)
  • ¼ tsp. garam masala, optional
  • 4 oz. Heritage Distilling Elk Rider Bourbon (1 oz. per drink)
  • Chocolate frosting for rimming the glasses
  • 3 graham crackers (6 squares), crushed
  • 4 large marshmallows
  • 4 bamboo skewers, cut in half for roasting marshmallows


  1. In a medium saucepan heat milk, chocolate, and garam masala on medium-low heat, stirring occasionally until chocolate is melted.
  2. Add in sugar a few tablespoons at a time being sure to taste test as you go. The amount of sugar you’ll need will depend on the kind of chocolate you use. If not using 90% cocoa do not dump in 6 Tbsp. sugar. You will be really sad with the outcome.
  3. Crush graham crackers in a Ziploc bag or in a food processor. Set aside in shallow bowl.
  4. Next rim four mugs with chocolate frosting, I used about ¼ tsp. per mug. I suppose the smoked syrup may have also worked but I was worried it might melt or run.
  5. Dip mugs in graham crackers until well-coated.
  6. Pour 1 oz. bourbon and an even amount of hot chocolate into each mug and stir.
  7. Skewer marshmallows and toast over your stove burner or your backyard fire pit or fireplace if you really want to set the mood!
  8. Place toasted marshmallows on top of hot chocolate and enjoy!
