Best leftovers ever

The homemade marshmallows turned out great, and I loved the little heart shapes...but no matter how closely I lined up my cuts, I still ended up with scraps.

Solution? Mini-mallows! It's as easy as chopping up the little leftovers into tiny bits. Then roll them around in the powedered sugar, to keep them from forming one big glob. Sure, they're not perfect little rounds like the ones you get at the store, but they're still sugar! No one will complain!

So now that you have fun baby marshmallows...you have to make something to go with them right? Perfect choice? Hot chocolate, of course! (I mean...you know I can't turn down hot chocolate!)

How about an easy Valentine's Day present? A gift bag, a couple packs of hot chocolate, and 1/2 cup of fresh marshmallows, and you're set!

Or you could try what has become my new favorite dessert....

Frozen Hot Chocolate!

Just mix packaged hot chocolate mix with milk, and pour into containers....

Add a couple marshmallows and throw them in freezer for a couple hours....

(I made these before I discovered homemade marshmallows. I can't imagine if they got even better!)

And be prepared to fall in love. I didn't even wait for this batch to freeze all the way...hot chocolate slushies? Yesssssss.

  1. You know I'm gonna have to have frozen hot cocoa now, right? You know I will not even sleep until I try it because of that last line, right?

    Just so you know.

    Those homemade marshmallows look delicious! I would not have the patience to make them, but they do look worth the energy!
