Marshmallow recipe was originally found in Martha's holiday issue but I noticed a few mistakes and found the recipe on-line (where it made more sense)- except 2/3 cup of water isn't listed in the ingredients at the top & she didn't mention to dust the marshmallows with confectioner's sugar before cutting them out. I figure after making these 5 times I should have the method perfected! The biggest bear was pouring out the marshmallows into the baking sheet and then cleaning up. These are sticky!!!!!!!!
The hot chocolate recipe is courtesy of December's Bon Appetit. It originally calls for peppermint extract but I made just plain hot chocolate and boy is it yummy!
