But when my daughter and I spotted these jumbo Kraft Jet-Puffed peppermint marshmallows on the top shelf of a heavily stocked aisle of Christmas candy... Well, how could I resist?
I've never seen these and actually couldn't find any marketing for them online.
It wasn't a hard sell, even though for a split second I worried what I'd do with so many.

And we've learned they taste quite good on top of hot cocoa.
I'm thinking they'll make great s'mores, especially with a burst of extra mint from a peppermint patty. Oh, and, we'll surely try these with rice cereal.
We also spotted (and, of course, purchased) a bag of French-vanilla marshmallows shaped like snowmen. I think we'll try the hot chocolate cupcake recipe on the bag. The cocoa-infused icing sounds super tasty.
This is actually the fourth bag of marshmallows I've purchased in as many days. For our Harvest celebration at The Farm, my sister and I bought mini marshmallows to top the sweet potato casserole. And both of us absolutely had to have the mint chocolate marshmallows we spotted (and later confirmed give a nice boost to plain old hot chocolate).
I have a feeling we'll be seeing more marshmallow flavors before the season's over. I expect I won't be a fan of all of them. But I think I'll enjoy each and every review.
