    Very good in a cup of Hot chocolate which with the weird weather i'm thinking about even in May. Not a quick and easy recipe but sooo much better than store bought marshmallows and not difficult at all.

      I have been making this recipe for years. I use peppermint candy canes. It takes 8 regular size candy canes. I bag them up and give them away as gifts. People just love them and request them too!! I have also made them using other flavor of candy canes. Just make sure you don't use candy canes with more than one color (red and green would make a brown marshmallow) they mute the colors. I make 3 batches at a time since I have 3 9x13 pans. It only takes 2 boxes of candy canes to make 3 batches!!! They are an easy and cheap gift to make. Thanks for a great recipe!!!

      So much fun for the holiday season! I cut out the marshmallows with holiday cookie cutters to make them more festive. Nothing like a cup of hot chocolate with a pink, fluffy, star shaped, peppermint marshmallow floating on top. EXCELLENT!!
