Marshmallow Hot Chocolate
- Marshmallow fluff
- Whipped cream
- Chocolatey Bliss: Begin by chopping your favourite chocolate and infusing it into hot milk. Whisk and combine.
- Mastering Marshmallow Hearts: While crafting the perfect cup, the spotlight is on marshmallow hearts. With a long, pointy teaspoon, delicately shape hearts inside the glass using marshmallow fluff. Cover the back of your spoon with marshmallow fluff, taking off any excess. If you have too much when you make the hearts they will just spread. Make one half of your heart by angling the back of the spoon at 45 degrees. If you need to lengthen the tip of the heart. Then carefully peel back the top of the spoon and swing the spoon to make the other part to your heart. Once your hearts are created you can go back and add on more fluff.
- A Rim of Love: Elevate your creation by rimming the glass with marshmallow fluff too using the same spoon. Then dip the rim into chocolate shavings or sprinkles.
- Topping Elegance: Prep your whipped cream and favourite toppings ahead of time. Before pouring the hot chocolate into the glass, ensure everything is ready.
- Pour, Garnish, and Enjoy: With everything in place, pour the chocolate into the adorned glass. Crown it with whipped cream and your chosen toppings. Indulge in the cute, rich, velvety warmth of your Valentine’s Hot Chocolate.
- Where can I buy marshmallow fluff from? I got mine from my local Sainsbury’s. It is about £2.50. Tap for the link.
- Why does the hot chocolate have to cool down? You can put hot hot chocolate however the marshmallow fluff will melt much quicker. It’s just for the aesthetics. Also I love a hot chocolate I don’t need to constantly blow to cool down.
- Where is the red heart decoration from? The red heart is one I made using melted white chocolate mixed with red oil based food colouring. Mix together then place in a heart shaped mould or make free hand hearts on greaseproof and chill.
As you sip, the marshmallow hearts begin to melt adding an extra sweetness to your hot chocolate. Whether shared with a loved one or savoured in solitude, this Valentine’s Hot Chocolate is more than a drink; it’s a celebration of love and the joy found in simple, indulgent pleasures. Cheers to a sip of love!
