Simple and cute, these jumbo marshmallow snowmen will make the cutest cup of hot cocoa you’ve ever had!

I think hot chocolate is one of those special drinks. All that smooth, sweet and creamy warmth in a mug just feels like a smile.

So why not go ahead and give it a smile?! I just love dressing it up and making it feel just that little bit more special.

Cutting large marshmallows in half to be decorated.

These are so easy to make and really do up the cute factor of your cup of cocoa!  All you have to do is cut your jumbo marshmallows in half.  Dip the cut sides in powdered sugar to keep them from sticking to everything.

Then pipe on black royal icing for the eyes and mouth.  Don’t be afraid to get a little creative if you have some fun ideas!  

Even people like me who aren’t so creative can pull out a few variations.  It is fun to see their little personalities come through.  

As much fun as it is to have a bunch of mini marshmallows floating in your cup of cocoa, a giant snowman face is even better!

I love a giant marshmallow (better than all those little ones - especially when it gets all soft and gooey!) the snowman face is really cute too. Thanks for joining us at the new #OTM linky :) ~ Leanne

I had never had hot chocolate with one giant marshmallow before, but now I don't think I can go back to the little ones! I love the one big one! Thanks for hosting!
