4.Pinch of salt
5.1/4 tbsp vanilla extract
6.1 Tbsp cinnamon (can be less or more depends on your preference) (optional)

Whisk the Cocoa, sugar, salt and 2 tbsp of milk together in a small saucepan over a medium-low flame until the cocoa and sugar are dissolved in the milk. Whisk the rest of the milk over medium heat, whisking occasionally until the drink is hot. Stir in vanilla 5 minutes before taking out the drink. Pour into a mug. Add marshmallows and sprinkle cinnamon on top.Add whipped cream to the sides of the circumference of the cup.
If you like your drink frothy, you can blend it in the blender and once removed from the blender, you can add marshmallows and sprinkle cinnamon on top. However, you must add the whipped cream in the blender. You can also add it again once you remove it from the blender just for the aesthetic or presentation if serving to others.
Your drink is ready to serve! Enjoy!
