*Psst, that's not just any hot chocolate, that's pumpkin pie hot chocolate! If you've been following me on facebook, you know that I'm a little obsessed with pumpkin flavors right now. And yes, I had hot chocolate this week...even though it's 100 degrees outside. Clearly I am in need of a fall-tervention.
But back to the marshmallows! These beauties are infused with chai tea and loaded with more spices like cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg. They're sweet and exotically spiced and although they are already a wee bit addicting on their own, they are absolutely perfect when added to your favorite warm beverage. And if you're not a tea drinker, you can use any spiced herbal tea in the recipe (ginger or cinnamon are both pretty easy to find) or even omit the tea entirely and just go very heavy on the other spices.
