Marshmallows for hot chocolate

If you happen to wind up with hardened marshmallow peeps leftover from Easter, don't toss them. Save them for hot chocolate - they make a little different topping as to looks, but they taste the same and the heat and liquid softens them so they melt just like fresh marshmallows.

I can't believe I never thought of this!

My family actually likes them stale, but this will be great when they pass that murky line between stale and too stale.

The kids have done this. I can't stand PEEPS, so I just avert my eyes.

My children have found they are great for roasting on a fire. You get the caramelized effect without burning a marshmallow.

I guess the sugar coating would caramelize!
