At first glance you might just think those are adorable little heart marshmallows floating a top that rich and decadent hot chocolate. But they’re not! They’re whipped cream hearts. Pretty cool eh? This is a super simple way to jazz up your hot chocolate and wow your kids/guests. I saw the idea on Pinterest and knew I had to make it myself. Your kids could even make these themselves. Get creative and use other shapes and customize it to your child’s likes. Grab your heavy whipping cream and follow the jump for the recipe!
