it's that time of year!
this weekend i'm attempting to make homemade marshmallows, something i've always wanted to do. i'll be using smitten kitchen's recipe and floating them in a steaming mug of my favorite homemade hot cocoa. we stole this recipe from a family friend and it's been a christmas staple in our house for years:
Instant Cocoa with Marshmallows & Chocolate Chips
7 cups instant nonfat dry milk powder
1 lb. Confectioners’ sugar
2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder, sifted
2 cups powdered nondairy creamer
2 cups mini marshmallows
1 cup mini chocolate chips
Stir together. For each serving: 1/3 c. mix & ¾ c. boiling water. Stir until chocolate chips begin to melt. Yields 14 cups mix or 42 servings. Makes a fabulous gift!
