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!

I love making homemade marshmallows for the holidays! Just this past weekend I made chocolate, coffee and peppermint flavors. They're always a hit - the peppermint is especially good in hot chocolate!
