I had a bunch of gingerbread marshmallows that DH bought and then never ate :) so I wanted to use them up and thought I'd try them out in this recipe. It was perfect over vanilla bean ice cream!
I used gingerbread marshmallows, 1/4 c brown sugar, 1/2 c sugar, 1/8 t cinnamon, pinch each of clove, allspice, and fresh grated nutmeg (because the 'mallows themselvers were not super gingerbread-y).

Thanks for a lovely recipe!

This was Fantastic! Very easy to make and tasted wonderful! I made up a couple batches, but them in decorative jars and gave as gifts (with hot fudge sauce), with rave reviews!

I substituted sweetened condensed milk (to get rid of leftovers) for the regular milk, and it was decadently rich! It got raves.
