My daughter and I tried on wool hats and scarves, smelled sprigs of lavender and perfume, handled jewelry and Christmas ornaments, and laughed at the pet outfits on display. Though we bought a few gifts, the vendor that we liked best was Squish Marshmallow, and it wasn’t because of their marshmallows.

 Squish Marshmallow

Squish Marshmallow sells hand torched marshmallows that are tan on the outside and warm and gooey inside. Some of the flavors include gingerbread, jelly donut, peppermint bark, chocolate dipped. We tried the chocolate dipped donut flavor that crunched. The taste reminded us of s’mores and transported us back to out girl scout days. Not only did we enjoy them, but we liked the unique concept.

But what we loved best was their hot chocolate because it tasted authentic.  It consisted of cream infused with Dutch cocoa and chocolate blended with vanilla and a touch of sugar. The decadent dark drink was bursting with cocoa, and it was hard not to drink the entire cup.

We split one, and we passed it back and forth several times, and it lasted only a few minutes. As a result of my greed, I forgot to photograph the drink. However, you can find Squish Marshmallow in Manhattan’s East Village, and I would love to know if you like their hot chocolate too.
