Chocolate Peppermint Marshmallows

(post, Lindsay Neu)

I have learned that there are two things in life that impress people way more than they should. (1) An undergraduate math degree and (2) homemade marshmallows. I know you mean it as a compliment, folks, but girls are good at math, too. Even ones that no longer have bad perms and pink plastic glasses (childhood friends – you know what I’m talking about). 

Now on to number two…also unreasonably impressive. I took a batch of these into my office Christmas party, met a lot of new people, and will now forever be known as “Marshmallow Girl”. I spent a lot more time on the gingersnaps, but these are what people remember. Homemade marshmallows are much better than store-bought, in my opinion. The texture is better; there’s no chemical taste; and you can flavor them however you’d like. Plus, you can wow some new friends.
