The kids always enjoy a steaming cup of hot cacao with a generous chunk of Cacao Marshmallows melting in it on cold mornings. Besides a daily bowl of bone broth, grass fed gelatin added to fruit jellies, and marshmallows (in this case) are a kid friendly way to heal and seal the gut. So we made up a batch of strawberry coated Cacao Marshmallows to make a very chocolatey hot cacao. I always look forward to enjoying this with an almond milk hot cacao! Oh yes, this would be amazing in a spelt and cacao nibs smore too! The thing I love so much about these marshmallows is that you don’t need many ingredients. This makes it a very quick and simple recipe to make. Add some gut healing goodness to your hot chocolate today!
