These Gigantic Marshmallow Men are Perfect for Topping Hot Chocolate

These convenient hot chocolate toppers are creatively decorated to look like snowmen using gigantic marshmallows to form the body of the ice men. These homemade marshmallow treats add a festive element to the warm beverage that is ideal for the winter season.

Edible treats that celebrate the holidays add a little special element to everyday foods, such as this hot chocolate recipe. The marshmallow snowmen are made from scratch using gelatine, sugar, water, vanilla and cornstarch. The marshmallows are made into thin cylinder rounds that perfectly float in a cup, but aren't too thick that they won't easily melt. Then the marshmallows are decorated with a smiling face, a carrot nose and earmuffs using melted colored candies to create an icing.
