Marshmallows feel like such a wintery food for me. I know that a lot of you might immediately think “s’mores” when you consider marshmallows, but I have to admit, I’m not a huge fan. I’m not sure why…I love marshmallows, chocolate and graham crackers individually, and I like s’mores flavored desserts, but the actual s’mores? Meh.
So for the most part, I make marshmallows exclusively in the winter. They were the first candy recipe I mastered, and I love playing with different flavor variations.
Heather and I were discussing what goes well with citrus the other night (we’re both on a quest to eat all the citrus this winter!) and the orange-chili combo came up. It seemed like the perfect twist for my hot cocoa mix + homemade marshmallows gift.
Now, who wants to come over for a spicy hot cocoa with creamsicle marshmallows? I have plenty!
