This is a light refreshing dessert we always had growing up on the 3 holidays. (Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter) My mom & my aunts would always stay up late cutting up the marshmallows, laughing & talking. I make mine more simply and use the mini marshmallows. :)mmmmmmm Its pretty simple too.

An interesting, easy-to-prepare dessert that can be a satisfying end to a big meal! I served this in small dessert bowls with a couple of crisp cinnamon wontons! Very nice! [Made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in this Spring's Pick-A-Chef]
