Find my recipe, for fluffy marshmallow perfection in a blog post
from several years ago. Marshmallow link.
See all those delicious flecks of vanilla bean? Be still, my heart.
You'll see the full step by step on the old marshmallow post, but
I cannot get over how much I love cutting huge, square marshmallows!
I bought cute little paper 'fruit' crates at the craft store (they were
labeled as food safe, FYI) and then popped the filled crate
into a clear cello bag and tied with hemp rope. I decided I needed
to send hot chocolate with the homemade marshmallows, so I filled
large Ball jars (they were narrow, yet rather tall...a style I had never
seen before, but am now obsessed). To create this hot chocolate
concoction of love I put the grater attachment in my food processer
and shaved big bars of dark chocolate (I bought the large bars
from Trader Joe's). The shavings yielded quite a bit, but I decided
I wanted to gift more hot chocolate so I did equal parts dark chocolate
shavings, unsweetened cocoa powder, confectioner's sugar and a
pinch of sea salt.
YUM YUM YUM!
On the back of the little label I attached to the
hot chocolate mix, I placed the directions of
1/3 cup mix to 1 cup hot milk.
I think this is a gift that should extend well into the New Year!
Who wouldn't love to receive this from their Valentine?
