Homemade Marshmallows

Have you ever seen a great idea (recipe, crafts, home project, etc.) and thought, 'I could never do that..."? Well, I have said the same thing about homemade marshmallows for years and it was time to give them a try. One of my favorite cooking blogs, Our Best Bites, has incredible tutorials on how to make everything from great recipes, to unique baked goods, and very informative instructions on kitchen challenges like canning, cookie decorating, and making homemade marshmallows.

I wanted to make these adorable homemade marshmallows for Valentine treat bags for friends and family and was excited about packaging them up with some delicious hot cocoa mix. This recipe takes some patience but overall it turned out well and super delicious! There is just something luxurious about having a huge homemade marshmallow in your hot chocolate instead of the mini ones that come in the hot chocolate mix packets. This idea would be a great gift idea for the holidays or a winter birthday party (and they are really easy to package up). With the weather still being chilly and gray, be sure to warm up with some hot chocolate today!
