i first saw this mix at fred flare: “you warm my heart hot cocoa mix” for $8, and figured it could probably be easily made … so i googled heart shaped marshmallows and came across a few articles and blogs, like the martha stewart living article which had a cute idea for cutting out marshmallows with a tiny little cookie cutter. i came across another blog which sadly i can’t fin the link anymore for it. but anyway, there’s lots of articles out there about it.
anyway, all these things can be purchased locally so that’s why this is so great – you can put it together real quick. here’s what you need:
wilton heart cut outs : can be purchased at joanns or michaels.
and of course, hot chocolate mix : i bought the Ghirardelli Hot Chocolate Mix – Double Chocolate. but there’s lots of simple and easy recipes to make your own hot chocolate mix with things you may already have in your household like sugar, cocoa powder, creamer. i don’t have any of these things so the quick stuff worked for me.. it’s up to you 😉 this blog also has some extra tips on things you can add into the mix.
