DIY Gift: Creamsicle Marshmallows with Spicy Hot Cocoa Mix

Spicy hot cocoa mix with creamsicle marshmallows #holidays #diygift #foodgifts

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!
