My daughter is always asking for marshmallows for her hot cocoa and all I had were large ones. They don't melt nicely in hot cocoa unless it is super hot and we don't, for safety reason, heat ours that warm. This uses whipped topping instead. Even though it is frozen, the heat from the hot cocoa is just enough to melt it and if you did happen get your cocoa too hot it will help cool it.
Using the decorating design of some snowman cupcakes I made a few years ago I came up with these. I did skip the orange spice drop as noses The thought of a gummy orange flavored candy floating (or maybe it wouldn't float) in my hot cocoa didn't sound great. I used orange-colored whipped topping instead.
Your kids can help you with the chocolate chips and if you need to you can use clean tweezers to place the mini chocolate chips.
