Recipe by Mirj2338

This makes a really creamy topping for your ice cream. My husband has been known to eat it straight with a spoon.

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!
