Since Piper’s birthday is in August (and we’ve spent her life in Colorado, Saipan, and Texas), we’ve never once had hot chocolate on her birthday before.
But that girl LOVES hot cocoa, and whipped cream and marshmallows are two of her favorite things.
So our southern hemisphere home gave us the perfect opportunity this year to do a hot chocolate board for her Paris birthday.
Marshmallows are definitely not as much of a thing in New Zealand (especially variety in marshmallows), but we collected several pastel hues, grabbed some pumpkin mallows at the American store in Auckland (they were a HUGE HIT with the party guests), and even randomly found some mini-rainbow mallows.
Since it was a Paris party, of course we added macarons and meringues to the board. But wouldn’t it just be the BEST pastel hot cocoa board for Christmas or New Year’s?
