These heart shaped marshmallows were so cute I knew I had to make them the moment I saw them! They’re super easy to make and are absolutely perfect to pop in a cup of hot cocoa this week! I’m excited to share a few more Valentines posts in the coming week so hopefully you like this one!

Peppermint Heart Marshmallows
You’ll need:

In a large bowl combine whipped topping with a couple drops of peppermint extract.

Stir until smooth, make sure there are no lumps!
Note: The original recipe called for a 1/2 cup of water to be combined with the whipped topping – I found that the marshmallows melted quickly once they were removed from the freezer so I wouldn’t suggest mixing the topping with any water.

Pour mixture into a pan lined with parchment paper – I wanted my marshmallows to be relatively thin so I chose a shallow baking pan

Add drops of red food coloring

Mix food coloring with your finger to make swirls

I seriously couldn’t get enough of the pretty pink swirls!

Freeze the mixture for a minimum of eight hours – preferably over night.
Cut using cute heart shaped cookie cutters

Pop the marshmallows into some cocoa or store in the freezer for later

Original recipe from Say Yes To Hoboken
