12 Days of Christmas Candy, Day 7: Kraft Jet-Puffed Peppermint Mallows

Mmm, I love a special edition flavor of Jet-Puffed Marshmallows! The flavor of these Peppermint Mallows is certainly mellow. In fact, unless I was informed of the pepperminty notes I would have pegged the flavor as vanilla. However, there is something so festive about these swirled pink and white mini mallows. Add them to a cup of hot cocoa or batch of rice krispie treats and suddenly the treats feel so festive. Despite the lack of real flavor, these little cuties are totally appealing.

Score: 3


  1. Hi there Rebecca. I always love reading your blog. What is your favorite kind or marshmallow? I have 3 kids and they love hot chocolate!!!! Merry Christmas,

    1. Thanks, Mary! I think Peeps can be really fun in hot cocoa. They're oversized and come in fun and festive shapes like trees and snowmen. I haven't seen them this year but Jet-Puffed makes fun Holiday Mallows in star and tree shapes in red and green. Also a fun trick with marshmallow: put a blog of marshmallow Fluff on a cup of hot cocoa and then hold a creme brulee torch or lighter over the top of the fluff until it starts to toast like over an open campfire- delicious!! Enjoy and Merry Christmas! -obsessivesweets
