Fancy Marshmallows for Hot Cocoa, Hot Chocolate

Serves 24 | Ready in 15 minutes | Perfect for Dessert

A good cup of Hot Chocolate needs a Fancy Marshmallow to top it off!  I’m not wrong here, trust me. 

Make up a batch of my Hot Chocolate Mix and try one of these Fancy Marshmallows on top for good measure. Mmmm.. nothing better!

Fancy Marshmallows

I love the reactions of my family when they see one of these BIG Marshmallows in their cup of Hot Cocoa.

Instant Pot Fun Fact:

Melting Chocolate in the Instant Pot

Pour 3-4 cups of water in your Instant Pot and set to Saute’ then use a large glass bowl on top (like a double broiler) to melt the chocolate.  It’s smooth!

Dipping Candies:

Choose Crushed Candy Cane, Andes Mints, M&M’s, Sprinkles, and more to make these fun Fancy Marshmallows.  Use white chocolate or milk chocolate.  The possibilities are endless

Neighbor Gifts:

You can make Fancy Marshmallows and package them up for neighbor gifts with our Hot Chocolate Mix.  Super Fun Neighbor Holiday Gift.  

Teacher Gifts:

Don’t forget your children’s teachers too!  They would love some Hot Chocolate Mix and Fancy Marshmallows in a fun holiday mug.  It’s an easy gift they will love.

I wish I could say that Hot Chocolate was a treat during the cold winter months where I live, but I honestly love it all year round. 

I suppose I get that from my mother who will drink Hot Chocolate in 90 degree weather and love it.  My son is now hooked too!

Adding Fancy Marshmallows is a fun Holiday Tradition to bring extra smiles and memories. 

It’s so easy to make and I love the large square marshmallows typically used for Smore’s.  They are a perfect size for a cup of cocoa and make the BEST Fancy Marshmallows too.
