Hot Choccie anyone?

My little boy made a request for hot chocolate the other day - fair enough I thought and proceeded to get the tin out of the cupboard. "And can I have marshmallows on the top please?", he proceeded. Well I'd never thought of doing such a thing but he'd had such a confection in a local cafe recently and obviously wanted to relive the moment!

We had some marshmallows left in the cupboard left over from Halloween (an unopened packet I might add!). So if you're looking for something extremely calorific and extravagant, pop a couple of marshamllows on the top of your hot chocolate - yummmmmmm! He made the request again yesterday when he had a pal in to play so I took this photo of the finished confection offering!!

I completed a set of these little fellows yesterday which will hopefully be brightening up someone's wall pretty soon. One of a number of orders from "Not on the High Street" - more to do!!

Have a good weekend and enjoy your hot choccie if you have one!

I love marshmallows in hot chocolate :) Can't have it any other way. well maybe with wipcream on top with chocolate sprinkles too. I can't find marshmallows here that are not pink :/

This was new to me! Deprived childhood and all that - Ha Ha! With my sweet tooth it might not be a good discovery :-) (Choc sprinkles sound extra delicious!!)

Hot chocolate without marshmallow is UNIMAGINABLE!! Maybe it's an American thing?

Tweed Delights said...

If it is, bring it on - Ha Ha! Any more yummy Americanisms?? :-)

candy canes in hot chocolate is good too. Pure Maple Syrup works too if you want a sugar buzz :p I'm trying to think of things we did in Canada that we don't do here....

Well, there is always Elvis' favorite, the peanut butter + banana sandwich ... which might actually pair fairly well with a hot chocolate with marshmallows!

Got to have whipped cream too :) Those bees are gorgeous!

Yes, marshmallows are standard in hot chocolate in U.S. The packets of instant chocolate come with little marshmallows already in them. I personally prefer some whipped cream, though. Mmm. Must go find some hot chocolate now.
