This has got to be a must-stock item for my camp pantry! My son will demand that this is a must-stock item for our home pantry as well.
What a relief! I won’t have to listen to the complaints at camp and at home that there are not enough mini marshmallows in the hot cocoa.
Now, I can stock my camp pantry with just one kind of hot cocoa and campers can add mallow bits as they wish.
I can’t count the number of times I have been planning a camping trip with a group and asked the highly controversial question: “Do you want hot cocoa with or without mini marshmallows?” Oh, the heated debate that ensues. This is the Mason-Dixon Line of camping! People either love them or hate them. It’s like the Hatfields and the McCoys! To satisfy both camps, I have always had to stock both kinds and I inevitably run out of one kind and campers have to resort to the (shudder) other kind.
And, just think of all the other possibilities! You could add them to ice cream and brownies. These would melt super-fast if you were making Rice Krispies Treats. And, there has to be a s’mores application somehow. I’ll work on that.
Special thanks to my friend Amy for sharing this and her picture, and my apologies to Olivia Newton-John, who’s song title I corrupted for the title of this post.
