Hot Chocolate with Marshmallow Fluff is rich and warming. The base of the hot chocolate contain your choice of nut milk and cacao powder. It's naturally sweetened with maple syrup which you can easily adjust to make it as sweet and rich as you would like. The marshmallow fluff, which contains two ingredients comes together in minutes in the mixer. It's the perfect winter time dessert!
If nostalgia had a taste, it would be hot chocolate. Growing up, I drank Swiss Miss- I know all you '90's kids can relate! My favorite was the instant mix with the dehydrated marshmallows. I loved it so much, I would even eat the powdered mix alone. No milk needed. I would make myself a mug of hot chocolate and then stuff as many marshmallows in my cup before my hot chocolate slipped all over my lap, or before my mom would yell at me. Which ever came first.
While I would love to enjoy some Swiss Miss today, it's just not something I can be drinking. It contains corn syrup and modified whey, two food products that I steer clear of. I've been making my own for years and am so excited to finally be sharing my recipe with you!
And who knew marshmallows were so easy to make? This marshmallow fluff contains two ingredients. Yes, you read that correctly-two ingredients! It takes a little work to make but it is so worth it. I promise. At first, the fluff is creamy and smooth and with time, it will stiffen up to soft marshmallows. I love these because you can pick however you want to enjoy them.
