Hot Cocoa is the perfect way to warm up when cold Winter weather is here. It’s even more fun with these adorable paw print marshmallows. They look like a polar bear has left tracks in the snow. You can also call them dog or cat prints, if you prefer.
They are really easy to make and, if your kitchen is like mine, they use 2 ingredients that are generally stocked in the pantry.
Polar Bear Paw Print Marshmallows
Standard Size Marshmallows (not the mini ones)
Use a sharp knife to carefully slice the pointy end off of a few chocolate chips. The big, flat piece will be the main part of the paw.
Cut some of the smaller pieces into toes.
Use kitchen shears to cut a marshmallow in half.
The cut edge will be sticky. Place the paw and toes on top of the sticky side of the marshmallow. Gently press down to make sure they are firmly attached. The marshmallows are ready to add to your hot chocolate or just eat them as is.
