It might be illegal to display hot chocolate on this blog, but I’ve always been a wild outlaw type of guy so I’ll deal with the consequences as they come up.
I picked chocolate to go with the light brown colors on the mug. I found out that you don’t want to put marshmallows in hot chocolate if you plan on painting them; they dissappear in a hurry. The flip side of this problem is that when the chocolate cools the marshmallows sit on top rather than sink halfway. You have to push them down.
