Marshmallow Thingies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by cuisinebymae

This is a delicious sweet treat. If the peanut butter mixture gets too thick before you're finished dipping the marshmallows, you can reheat it carefully to thin it a bit.

These are a hoot -- they remind me of sweets I made from the Betty Crocker Junior cookbook in the 1960s, so I'm serving them at a 1950s card party I'm having this weekend. Thanks, Mae, for this nostalgic, fun thingy!
