We normally put marshmallows on top of hot chocolate, but have you ever had a marshmallow that tastes like hot chocolate? Now you can, with this recipe from DAVIDs TEA.
Steep tea in a ½ cup of hot water for 5 minutes and strain into a stand mixer bowl, fitted with the whisk attachment. Add half & half or cream alternative and gelatin, and mix until dissolved.
In a medium saucepan add remaining ½ cup of water, sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Set to medium-high heat and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Let boil for 3-4 minutes, being careful not to let it boil over.
Add heated sugar mixture in a slow stream to the stand mixer bowl, set to low speed. Add vanilla and increase speed to high, whipping for about 15-20 minutes. The mixture will thicken and cool.
Spray and 8-by-8 or other shallow baking dish with non-stick spray and coat with powdered sugar. Pour in marshmallow mixture and let sit for at least 5 hours.
Using a greased pizza roller or knife, cut into 1 by 1 squares.
Add 4 tablespoons powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon cocoa powder into a gallon sized bag. Place in marshmallows and shake to coat.
