Mini Hot Cocoa Mugs

What's cuter than cute?  You're going to have to admit that these teeny tiny mugs of minted hot are just that.  While drinking my first mug of the season, I thought that these could make a delicious gelatin creation.  So off to the gelaboratory I went.  

These shots are a blend of chocolate pudding mix, peppermint schnapps, creme de cacao,  sweetened condensed milk, and marshmallow vodka.  

One of the garnishes I made by cutting up mini marshmallows into mini-er mallows. I also candied tiny mint leaves and rolled a striped taffy and twisted it into teeny tiny candy canes. The handles are Wint-o-green life-savers. Those are more for show. Your teeth won't thank you if you bite into them. 

These have a creamy chocolatey mouth feel combined with the crisp sugary bite of the candied mint leaf.  

Stay tuned... more winter shots coming up!
