Whipped Cream Hearts

Whipped Cream Hearts www.bellalimento.com

My kids absolutely LOVE anything they can put marshmallows in. S’mores, their mouths, nutella sandwiches (yes it’s a thing, you should try that), hot chocolate, you name it. We had planned on making homemade marshmallows during the snowpocalypse but there seems to be a shortage of unflavored gelatin in my town. We hit several stores and at all of them the shelves were wiped out. What’s a Mom to do when she’s promised marshmallows? Make whipped cream “marshmallows” of course. Yes you read correctly. Whipped Cream Marshmallows. Guess what? They’re WAY easier than traditional marshmallows and the kids can make them themselves. Who’s a Mom rockstar now? We are.

Want to know what else my kids love? Trumoo. Every time they see it in the dairy department they ask for it. Not kidding. When it came time to put our whipped cream hearts to good use we used a new flavor of Trumoo  to make our “hot chocolate” – Trumoo’s Chocolate Marshmallow Milk.  It’s pretty much a s’more in a cup! TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow milk is made with fresh white milk sourced from regional dairies around the country – pure cocoa and just enough natural sugar to make it taste great. Nutritious and Delicious! Did you know that TruMoo Milk contains no artificial growth hormones and no high fructose corn syrup. You can enjoy TruMoo Chocolate Marshmallow hot or cold! Try it as an ingredient in your favorite mock-tail. It’s available in the dairy section at grocery stores nationwide through the month of February.

    My son LOVES chocolate milk and hot chocolate! He especially enjoys whipped cream and calls it ‘cream ball’ (he’s 3 lol). I’m going to have to try this for Valentines Day for him!

    That is so clever, Paula! I’ve piped whipped cream out and frozen it but never cut it in shapes. BRILLIANT!
