Snow enforces winter's cold by trapping the earth's heat underground and reflecting away the warmth from the sun. In a play on that relationship, we've created a flurry of homemade marshmallow snowflakes floating in mugs of steaming hot cocoa.

Make a batch of Marshmallow Snowflakes.
Spread the marshmallow mixture on a rimmed baking sheet with an offset spatula.
Once the mixture is firm, use cookie cutters coated with nonstick cooking spray to punch out the flakes.
