Goodies to Gift Day 5

We finally made it...through 5 full days of treats!

I hope you've found some recipes and ideas for things to bake, mix, season and give away.

I'm pretty stoked to give away my goody sacks this year. This is about as crafty as I get, folks. (Thanks to Spoon Fork Bacon for these fun labels.)

For this last recipe, we're trying something new and so much fun.

When I saw these Peppermint Marshmallows on A Beautiful Mess, I knew that they needed to be the "something new" on my Christmas treats-to-make list. Wait, that's the wrong occasion for that list, isn't it? Whatever, it works.

This recipe is fairly straightforward and makes great use of your stand mixer.

It's really hard to believe how fluffy, tender and refreshingly minty these little fluff-cubes turn out to be. And hello, mint mallow flavored hot chocolate!

And now that I know how to make marshmallows, I can't wait to experiment with different flavors.

Merry Christmas and thank you for giving your time to reading this blog and making sweet treats and warm memories for your family and friends.

Tip: If you have a silicone square pan to make these in, I highly recommend using it. This allowed me to flip the marshmallows easily out of the pan without them sticking too much. If you're not using a silicone pan, you could perhaps line it with parchment paper or put powdered sugar on the sides as well as the bottom.
