My son is convinced this is the worst winter he can ever remember. I don’t know if that’s true but it’s either snowing, bitter cold, or the wind is whipping up skirts everywhere! Tomorrow we’re supposed to have wind chill temperatures of 20 below or worse! At least we can comfort ourselves with a piping cup of hot chocolate with peppermint marshmallows! The recipe is at the end of the post …
Mmm. Hot Chocolate with Peppermint Marshmallows was a comforting drink on this frosty day!
Hot Chocolate with Peppermint Marshmallows
4 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons cocoa
Dash of salt
2 cups milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
4-5 jumbo marshmallows
10 peppermint candies, crushed
Lightly wet the outsides of the jumbo marshmallows with water or milk, then roll in crushed peppermint. Set aside. In a medium sized saucepan, mix together sugar, cocoa, and salt. Turn heat on to medium. Slowly add the milk, blending well. Add vanilla and heat mixture until hot but not boiling. Pour into 2 mugs and set 2 to 3 peppermint marshmallows to float on top. Makes 2 servings.
Stop back tomorrow for a special Valentine’s Showcase!
