Marshmallow Stars Cocoa Toppings

Hosting friends over the holidays? Mix up some marshmallow stars to top your hot cocoa. Your whole family will be amazed at how these are made from scratch.

For this winter wonderland treat, mix up homemade marshmallows and top them on hot cocoa. Part science experiment, part kitchen activity, your kids will be fascinated by the transformation from gelatin and sugar into fluffy marshmallows. Cut them into star shapes with the largest cookie cutter in the Winter Wonderland kit. Simple ingredients: unflavored gelatin, water, sugar, corn syrup, vanilla extract, Cooking spray and Confectioners’ sugar.

Teach your kids how to use these basic tools:

  • Measuring cups & spoons
  • Medium-size saucepan
  • Whisk
  • Electric mixer
  • Candy thermometer
  • Star cookie cutters
  • baking pan
