Polar Bear Hot Chocolate

Updated: Jul 17, 2020



Aren‘t these absolutely adorable? I may have been a little overzealous with this project (THREE bags of marshmallows, Rachel?) but I couldn’t resist. They were fun and easy to make and were the perfect topping to our creamy dreamy white hot chocolate!


Ingredients for Polar Bear Marshmallows:

🔲 jumbo marshmallows

🔲 regular marshmallows

🔲 mini marshmallows

🔲 white chocolate chips (about 1/4 cup)

🔲 candy eyes

🔲 brown candy pieces (M&M’s, Reese’s Pieces, chocolate chips etc)

🔲 spreaders (plastic knives, spoons, popsicle sticks)


Ingredients for White Hot Chocolate:

🔲 4 cups milk

🔲 1 cup white chocolate chips

🔲 1 tsp vanilla

Optional:

🔲 whipped cream

To Make Polar Bears:

Begin by melting the white chocolate chips in the microwave or on the stove. This will serve as your ”glue” for attaching all the polar bear parts.

Next, cut a regular sized marshmallow in half.

Spread a little bit of the melted white chocolate on the cut side and place it on the top of a jumbo sized marshmallow.

Like this:


Attach a brown candy piece in the center for the nose. Then attach two eyes and two mini marshmallows for ears.


Isn’t it so cute?!


This recipe makes a ton. We made about a dozen and then saved the rest of the marshmallows for different projects.


Now it’s time to make the hot chocolate! Pour the milk into a saucepan and begin heating at medium heat. Add a heaping cup of white chocolate chips and a teaspoon of vanilla. When the white chocolate chips melt, it is ready to drink. Serve in a mug with whipped cream (optional) and a polar bear marshmallow. Or you can serve over ice for a take on a white chocolate frappucino!


And if you didn‘t already think this would be absolutely delicious, that smile says it all!
