Hot Chocolate Day - Yay!

We had a treat with our snack today - hot chocolate and homemade marshmallows.
I made the marshmallow at home because it does involve very hot syrup and takes a while in the mixer.
Warm marshmallow creme is so good.
I poured half of the marshmallow in the pan and to the rest I added colour.  We'll use the pink closer to Valentines Day.  If you want the recipe, you can find it here.
 I decorated little styrofoam cups as snowmen. Inspiration.

At the art table we painted with hot chocolate mixed with brown paint.
 The paper shape is a mug.
So a clever parent grab a real coffee mug to help the children and grown ups compare the shapes.
The paint really does smell like chocolate.
 We used confetti for marshmallows.
 Marshmallows sprinkled all over the table
and floor by the end of the morning.

Yummy morning.
