Have you been looking for a fun Christmas gift to give and that comes from your kitchen? I got a really cute gift today from a good friend and colleague at work, Jessica.
I took one out to get a better look at it. I am going to drink it out of these great mugs from Germany that my grandmother gave me about 25 years ago. I still have all six mugs and not a chip on one of them. I love them so much. I always think of her when I get these out at Christmastime.
Jessica said she found the recipe at this website:
There are even printable tags you can use on the website above. Nice!
I found a similar recipe and tutorial at this website:
Jessica said it was her first time making her own marshmallows and that that was interesting. She said she had white, sticky stuff everywhere when she was whipping it up. I have never made my own marshmallows. My friend, Melissa (of Baking for the Boys fame) gave me homemade marshmallows one year. My, they were good. I can't even imagine making my own. I'm going to enjoy sampling this hot chocolate! Thank you, Jessica!
AFTER SWEET PEA'S BATH TONIGHT, WE MADE SOME.
I hope this might inspire some others who are looking for a little crafty gift to give!
Until next time,
