Adorable penguin cups are optional, but these giant, jumbo marshmallows just make hot chocolate way more fun, even if you’re not a huge marshmallow fan.

Actually, so will the marshmallow. And the chocolate chips. It was tricky to get the chips to stick in the first place, but getting the marshmallow to stay upright while I tried to take a picture -and- the chocolate chips from sliding off had us all giggling for a while.

If you don’t have a penguin cup, tea cups make the marshmallow look even more abnormally large.

Keep this mix stashed in the pantry for cold days. Or Swiss Miss….she makes a good one, too. ;)
Bulk Hot Cocoa Mix
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 cup cocoa (Dutch-process preferred)
  • 2 1/2 cups powdered milk

Also, while looking around for pictures of the marshmallows, I found these sheep/lamb marshmallow pops
