These DIY Snowflake Marshmallows are perfect for hot cocoa after a sledding!
One of my favorite winter treats is hot chocolate topped with marshmallows! It’s the perfect beverage for warming up after sledding on a cold winter’s day. Marshmallows are a staple in this house. Reed will eat them for a snack so we run out pretty quickly. Whip up these cute DIY Snowflake Marshmallows as an extra special treat!
My mom used to make these from Cool Whip when we were little! They are so easy and fun, the kiddos will love lending a hand!
Make your own DIY Snowflake Marshmallows
All you need is a container of Cool Whip and 1/2 cup of water.
- Begin by lining a 13×9 inch pan with wax paper. Mix water and Cool Whip together in large bowl. Pour mixture into pan and freeze for about 4 hours.
- Remove from the freezer. Turn pan upside onto a cutting board. Peel off the wax paper.
- Using a cookie cutter of your choosing, start cutting out the shapes. This will yield about 12-15 marshmallows depending on the size of your cookie cutter.
They keep great in the freezer! Simply place in an airtight container and return to the freezer to use when ready!
We use a similar recipe to make our own ice cream sandwiches! So you can use it as a fun treat for the summer months!
Reed was beyond thrilled when he saw these DIY Snowflake Marshmallows in his hot chocolate! Worth the extra effort for that heart melting smile! You can make these into any shape but the snowflake just seemed fitting. Have fun with it! Add sprinkles or chocolate chips to yours for a little something extra.
Stay warm, friends!
