Hot Chocolate Marshmallows!

For a truly decadent cup of hot chocolate, how about adding the hot chocolate to the marshmallows instead of the marshmallows to the hot chocolate! Confused? Don't be..these are easy & delicious. 
The perfect pick-me-up while you're cooking that Thanksgiving dinner.   :o) 
Can you stand it!! Hot Chocolate Flavored Marshmallows..
Of course use any flavor hot chocolate you wish..but this dark chocolate is wonderful!
For the bloom. 
Mmm..stirring the slurry base..
I couldn't stop myself. Had a couple of spoonfuls right from the bowl. Yummm!

Hot Chocolate Marshmallow Recipe
 Prepare the bloom
1/2 cold water
2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
1 packet hot chocolate mix
Stir the gelatin and hot chocolate mix together. Add water and stir to combine. Set aside.

Prepare the base
2 cups sugar
pinch salt
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup water 
2 packets hot chocolate mix
Combine ingredients in a heavy bottomed, straight sided saucepan. Stir over medium heat till sugar dissolves. Attach a candy thermometer and continue cooking without stirring till candy reaches soft ball stage (235 degrees). Remove from heat, add bloom and set aside.

Prepare egg whites
In mixer, with whisk attachment, beat two egg whites until stiff peaks form.

Making the Mallows
With mixer on low speed, slowly pour in hot mixture. Switch mixer to high and beat for 10 minutes, adding vanilla half way through. Poor mixture into pan prepared with non-stick spray. Let sit overnight.

When marshmallows are set, turn them out onto a surface prepared with equal parts 10x sugar and cocoa powder.
Lightly spray a knife or pizza wheel  or cookie cutter with non-stick spray and cut mallows. I used a round cookie cutter to get a nice shape for my cocoa mug.
You Will Enjoy These!
