My little girl LOVES Oswald from Nick Jr.
Henry, the penguin Oswald’s friend
and talks about his hot cocoa quite often.
He likes it with,”Two marshmallows. No more. No less.”
How I created this cake:
I used an 8 cup batter bowl from Pampered Chef.
It’s the one people use to make the barbie cakes.
I know, that’s soooo 90’s.
Here’s a picture from Pampered Chef’s website:
Once it was baked and cooled,
I leveled the top and dug a small well
for the “hot cocoa” to sit.
What is the pretend hot cocoa made of?
Chocolate ganache (mmmm)
This worked because while it was warm,
it was viscous enough to pour,
yet solid enough to not drain into the cake itself.
Before I put it in the fridge
to completely set the ganache,
I popped two marshmallows on top.
Just like Henry likes it!
(But added one more since it was a
The handle is 1/2 of a doughnut
held in place with toothpicks.
This was a big hit (and delicious too!).
Since I’ve made this cake, I’ve found and fallen in love with homemade marshmallows.
They would’ve made this even better.
