  • “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!”

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