Better late than never.....RIGHT??

I'm running behind....I made some of these homemade peppermint marshmallows for some gifts. I only got a few delivered before Christmas. So I made more tonight:
I'll combine them with homemade cocoa and deliver them tomorrow.
I'm not sure about the cocoa in all honesty. My family really likes it, but I tend to think it needs more cocoa. Or chocolate chips....hmmmm.....
Better late then never.....RIGHT?? I figure if public schools are still out than it's still "The holiday season" so maybe I'm not TOO bad....yeah I's bad. oh well!!
I have to say, we're now totally addicted to homemade marshmallows. They taste SOOOO much better than storebought. Hubby is dreaming of different flavors and roasting homemade ones over a fire. I'm pretty sure they'll be fantastic. We'll see....BUT just an FYI....peppermint they won't stay pretty for too long...and especially not in cold. Still taste good and aren't too sticky of shaken in a bit of powdered sugar.
(FYI you can click the word "these" above for the recipe I used. However, I did not use the full amount of peppermint extract. Some may want to eat them and can be a bit overpowering to me. In fact I put even LESS in this second batch and more vanilla then the recipe calls for)

Love the new look of your blog! I normally bake something as well for the holidays, but it just didn't happen this Christmas, so I said oh, well and just mailed the cards out late (well, actually I gave Thad your's when I brought back the carafe the other day) Thanks for the homemade treats, they look delicious so I will have to have Kevin eat them up fast so I won't be tempted to try them!! Happy New Year!

Yes well generally I do a lot of baking too...and this just didn't happen. Sigh...but my waist appreciates that!!
WE LOVED your card. In fact's one of only 2 that made it to our fridge. Seriously even Thad after I opened it and put it up there took it down and commented on how cool it was. VERY creative!! Just loved it!! I got no cards done .... seriously where did the time go this year?? Well really I guess the time didn't change, but obviously I didn't schedule well. oh well next year right?!! Thanks for being such a GREAT neighbor!!!
