christmas hot chocolate recipe


Hot chocolate just isn’t hot chocolate without marshmallows – especially to the kids! So, you can make your hot chocolate a little more fun this winter by making polar bear marshmallows to add to your drink!


To make your marshmallow polar bears, here’s what you’ll need (amounts are for each bear):

• 1 jumbo marshmallow
• 1 standard-sized marshmallow
• 2 mini marshmallows
• 2 candy eyeballs
• 1 chocolate candy (I used peanut butter M&M’s)
melted white chocolate/almond bark

Let get started!

Polar Bear Marshmallow Directions:
For each bear, you’ll start with your jumbo marshmallow for the base. Then, you’ll cut about 1/3 off a standard marshmallow to use for the polar bear’s muzzle.


Melt a small amount of white chocolate (or almond bark/white candy coating) and put a small tab on the cut side of that 1/3 marshmallow piece, then attach it to the jumbo marshmallow.

Put a small dab of melted white chocolate on the chocolate candy (where the logo is) and place it on the top side of the muzzle.

Then, put a small dab of the melted white chocolate on the back of each of the candy eyeballs and put them on the jumbo marshmallow face, right above the muzzle.

Lastly, put a small dab of the melted chocolate on each of the mini marshmallows and attach to the top sides of the jumbo marshmallow for ears.
