I woke up today to two inches of snow on the ground. We don't receive snow that often, so it really put me in the Christmas spirit. After I took the dogs for their morning walk, I made a big mug of hot cocoa. My cocoa was just like the cookie with marshmallows and whip cream. When I was a kid my mom would always make us hot cocoa with milk. Now I just make cocoa with my Keurig machine.
To make this cookie, I sketched out the mug shape with a food coloring marker. I filled in the cocoa section with brown icing first. While the icing was still wet, I added a few mini marshmallows. Next, I piped and flooded the green mug. I added red dots to the wet green icing. I added whip cream with a number 2424 tip and steam coming from the top of the mug. I painted the steam gray to add realism.
If you have not figured it out, this is the cookie cutter I used to make today's creation. You can get the cutter here.
