Moo Moo Marshmallow

It's officially a marshmallow season!!!!!!!
Hot cocoa with warm milk and marshmallow is a must item of this season♪
(for me, warm soy milk^^)
Make your winter drink warmer with moo moo cow marshmallow.

Here is my favorite hot chocolate recipe. Adapted from Hot Chocolate recipe.

  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 teaspoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 cup 1% milk, divided  (I used 1/2 soy milk + 1/2 vanilla flavor almond milk)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract ( I skipped this)
  • Pinch of ground cinnamon

  1. Mix sugar, cocoa and 2 tablespoons cold milk in a mug until smooth. Heat the remaining milk in a small saucepan on the stovetop or in a 2-cup glass measure in the microwave until steaming hot but not boiling. Stir in the cocoa mixture and vanilla.
  2. To froth the hot chocolate, whirl a whisk in it by rubbing your hands back and forth. (Alternatively, pour the hot chocolate into a blender, cover with the lid and a kitchen towel and blend until frothy.) Pour it back into the mug and sprinkle with cinnamon.

This cow marshmallow is great for decorating your cake too.
Especially when you make white, black or marble cake!
Try this soft and moist steamed cake. It's daily free^^
