I made some easy homemade marshmallows last year with store bought whipped topping and thought I’d make a Valentine’s Day version since they were so quick and delicious!
I love how the swirled peppermint pink looks. Initially my idea was to cover them with broken peppermint candies, but I liked the swirls so much I left them that way.
Here’s how to make them in three easy steps…
1. Mix 1 container of store bought whipped topping with 1/2 cup of water and 2 drops of peppermint extract. Place waxed paper over a casserole dish and spread whipped topping into the dish.
2. Place drops of pink food coloring into the dish and careful mix with a finger or knife. Freeze for at least 4 hours
3. Cut out shapes with a small heart shaped cookie cutter.
Place directly in hot chocolate or place back in the freezer for another hot chocolate night!
