When I think of marshmallows, two things come to mind.
1.Rice Krispies treats
2. Hot Chocolate
Rice Krispies treats is one of my favorite things to make during the holidays. Whoever came up with the idea of mixing marshmallows and Rice Krispies cereal, bless them. It doesn’t matter if it’s homemade, store bought, or chocolate-flavored; I’ll eat it.
The treats bring back memories of childhood, during Christmas time my mom and I used to make them. Sometimes we’d add M&M’s or chocolate chips to them. That was my favorite thing to make during the holidays. It’s been a while since we cooked some, but just writing about them is making me crave the treats.
The next thing that comes to mind with marshmallows is hot chocolate. When the weather turns cold, I love making a cup of hot chocolate. I like to top of the drink with marshmallow. Sometimes I use tiny marshmallows, other times I opt for the cream. Adding a touch of marshmallow adds flavor to the drink. With the marshmallow cream, I love it when the chocolate sops into it and I can eat it afterwards.
With winter coming in a few months, I’ll be breaking out the hot chocolate and marshmallows. Plus, I’ll be making a batch Rice Krispies treats.
