I went with “hot chocolate” – but not in the way you might think! I enjoyed these marshmallows with a cup of Flaming Hot Maté from 52Teas! Roasted Yerba Maté, cacao nibs and cayenne pepper provided an interesting contrast to this sweet and salty treat. The tisane is spicy and chocolate-y, and the marshmallow is gooey, sweet, salty goodness! YUM!
These are also tasty as chai hot chocolate toppers … read my “recipe” below!
What I think:
If you’ve read very many of my sweet treat reviews, you area probably aware that I love salted caramel. I love how the salt contrasts with the sweet caramel flavor. So when I find something that’s salted caramel – whether it’s candy, cupcakes or even marshmallows, I MUST try it!
And of the salted caramel treats that I’ve tried thus far, I think that these marshmallows just might be my favorite … or at least in the top three! These are incredible.
I tried my first one as a topper for a cup of hot chocolate (going back to my Ski Lodge tasting box, I brewed up a pot of Masala Chai from Yogic Chai and melted one of the Dark Hot Chocolate on a Sticks in the hot chai, and then topped the tea infused hot chocolate with one of these enormous marshmallows. Oh, and these marshmallows are huge, one is more than enough for a cup of hot chocolate!) Let me tell you, this cuppa was heaven! As the marshmallow began to melt, I could taste the salty caramel together with the spices and the creamy, rich chocolate. Oh so good!
The next day, I enjoyed one of the marshmallows with the Flaming Hot Maté, as I mentioned above, and it’s hard for me to say which way I enjoyed these marshmallows more! Both were amazing.
My Final Thoughts:
Incredible. Just incredible. These marshmallows are simply the BEST marshmallows I’ve ever tasted.
