Even though the weather has been wacky lately, it's still hot chocolate season! At my house we've been experimenting with cocoa variations — spicing our cups with cinnamon and chili powder or using all white chocolate. Recently, while we were looking online for new cocoa tricks to try, we discovered a recipe for homemade marshmallows.  Marshmallows are one of those things I never even thought about making from scratch, so I was surprised by the ease of the process. And the first time we added our beautiful, springy homemade marshmallows to our hot chocolate, it was a revelation. They were so much more delicious than the store-bought kind, I don't know if we'll ever go back. Plus, they are pretty enough to wrap up and give as gifts. This recipe makes about 100, so you'll have plenty to share! We added peppermint extract to ours, but vanilla, coconut, almond or lemon would also taste great. You can even tint them with food coloring during the last part of the mixing process if you like.
