Homemade marshmallows are perfect for this time of year!  I started with a batch of Butter’s Famous Marshmallows because… they are delicious!  And there’s simply no reason to mess with perfection that is tried and true.  Then to add to the fun, I cut them into snowflakes and added a touch of chocolate and peppermint.  The end result is a little piece of marshmallow heaven.

Top a cup of steaming hot chocolate and watch it melt into a gooey topping that is out of this world delicious.  First you taste the sweet marshmallow and then comes the chocolate and peppermint.  Serve these to guests or individually package in treat bags for a homemade gift.

a DIY by Carrie Sellman

STEP 1:  Make marshmallows following Butter’s Famous Marshmallow recipe.

STEP 2:  When marshmallows are firm, cut into snowflakes using a cookie cutter coated with cooking spray.

STEP 3:  Dip the bottom edge of each snowflake into a bowl of melted chocolate.  Let excess chocolate drip off and then dredge in chopped peppermints.  I used soft peppermints so they would easily melt into the hot chocolate.  Set on wax paper until cool and firm.

STEP 4:  Serve on top of hot chocolate and let it melt into a gooey chocolate peppermint heaven.  If needed, pop the entire mug into the microwave for a few seconds to really help the marshmallows melt.
