Brrr! It’s still “fall” here in the midwest, but you couldn’t tell it by looking outside.
Old Man Winter has decided to make an early appearance. Which, quite frankly, happens pretty much every year. The only people who seem surprised by it are the meteorologists.
Having snow for us, often leads to the start of the school day being delayed, or in the case of both Friday and today, canceled. A snow day can only mean: snow ball fights, building snow forts, sledding….and getting cold! And what better to remedy the cold of wintry weather, than a steaming cup of hot chocolate, topped with marshmallows!
But, what do you do when you don’t have marshmallows? I don’t know about you but I need marshmallows in my hot chocolate!!
Well, it is something I’ve always wanted to make.
But, I don’t have corn syrup. Most recipes call for corn syrup. 😦
So I turned to the web for a recipe using only sugar. Yay for me, I found one!!
The recipe I used is on food.com, you can find it here.
I followed the instructions word for word (almost!). It was easy….and I took pictures to further illustrate the steps.
I’ve decided after today, that hot chocolate is waaaay better with homemade marshmallows! It was unbelievably easy to make these, I really hope you give it a try!
Maybe next time I’ll try mint extract instead of vanilla….or maybe strawberry….or….
What do you do to warm up from the winter’s cold?
P.S. Here is a recipe for AAAA-mazing hot chocolate!
