Make a Friend for your Hot Chocolate!


Make this marshmallow cow, or invent your own creature, to adorn your hot chocolate! Keep a few different sizes of marshmallows on hand for making heads and bodies. It's a perfect winter craft!

1 regular marshmallow
1 chocolate-flavored marshmallow (I used Kraft Jet-Puffed Chocolate Royale Marshmallows)
4 black nonpareils
1 black Haribo Raspberry candy
1 jumbo marshmallow

1. To make the head, cut the regular-sized marshmallow in half horizontally and turn it on its side. The flat uncut bottom will be the face. Cut the chocolate marshmallow in half horizontally, and press the cut sticky side of one half to the face to make the snout. Using the toothpick, poke two holes for eyes and two for nostrils. With the toothpick, pick up the nonpareils and push them into the holes. Cut a thin sliver off the top of the head and adhere the raspberry candy “hat.”
2. To make the body, cut a slit along the long side of the jumbo marshmallow. Push the slit onto the rim of a mug. Trim a bit off one edge of the jumbo marshmallow and a bit off the bottom of the head to expose their stickiness and press together.
