Do ONE THING on Pinterest challenge: the hot chocolate edition

I am on Pinterest (and I know many of you are too!) and I have found myself with a growing pile of ideas in my boards. The pile keeps getting bigger, yet, oddly, I haven’t done much with any of them. I see, I pin, and then I never really go back. It’s like buying a whole new wardrobe and still wearing my old clothes. Well, it’s time to change that! I’ve decided to use this space here to motivate myself to undertake one pin a week and start striking pins off my list. Of course I’ll share each one with you here, regardless of whether they were fantastic failures or spectacular triumphs.

First on my list was this lovely way of decorating hot chocolate:

It looks like a heart-shaped marshmallow, doesn’t it? I’ve always wanted to make my own marshmallows but I’ve never been able to get it together enough to do so. But THIS is actually frozen whipped cream, which made this project totally within the realm of possibility.

Luckily for me we had some real whipped cream leftover from a dessert, so we smoothed it into a small glass dish and put it in the freezer. And then we forgot about it for awhile. When we finally DID remember we pulled it out of the freezer and let it sit in the kitchen to soften for a few minutes, then used small cookie cutters to make the heart shapes. And they turned out great! Not only were they a fun addition to our hot chocolate and coffee (!), but they cooled it down a little too.



Isn’t that pretty? And it was sooo good. I would call this one a Pin Win! Let me know if you try this one too. I’d love to see your results!
