I’ve been a big fan of Morning Glory Confections for years now. I love the fun and unique brittle flavors they make and I love giving them as gifts. If you catch them at a farmer’s market or artisan food show you have to make a stop and enjoy one of their delicious baked goods, especially the brownies. So what this is really is a little love story just in time for Valentine’s Day. It’s a love story about my love of Morning Glory Confections.

And perfectly timed for Valentine’s Day, they came out with two new drinking chocolates (classic and spicy) that you guessed it, I LOVE! I used their classic drinking chocolate to create the ultimate Valentine’s Day indulgence. Enjoy it in the morning with a shot of espresso or to get cozy at the end of your romantic evening (it goes great with a shot of whiskey).

This is the perfect indulgence for these chilly days and nights. To add to the goodness I whipped up some homemade marshmallows to go on top. If this intimidates you let me tell you right now that marshmallows are easy to make. They are. Not scary. Just takes a bit of planning. They can be made the night before or in the morning to enjoy in the evening. A few simple steps and some time for the marshmallows to form and you’ve got yourself a tasty topping for your drinking chocolate. Check out the recipe below.
