Just thought I'd share with everyone a new flavor (at least new to me) marshmallows at Walmart - Gingerbread. They smell wonderful and are shaped like little gingerbread men and are slightly browned. They are $1.09 per package and located where the holiday baking specialty isle is in the store. Now, I know you all get inspired when you see a new product so I was thinking - marshmallow fondant made with gingerbread marshmallows cut out on top of gingerbread cookies then decorated. So much better tasting than royal or color flow. What do you think? Merry Christmas to all!
I have not seen them, but it definitely sounds good. I agree, that would be perfect for a gingerbread cookie and it will taste great. Or to make MMF to cover a spice cake...
Thank you so much for sharing!!!
I sold cupcakes at the mall over the weekend and I made pumpkin with cream cheese icing and decorated the top wit a gingerbread marshmallow. I made 150 and sold out! (I had 7 flavors, 150 of each flavor and came home with 60 of them.)
I had a student use the gingerbread marshmallows to make MMF and she was thrilled with the results.
That sounds like a great idea! I always keep a lookout for flavored marshmallows, but to make rice krispie treats, I have not yet tried to make fondant. Some other flavors I have seen so far are pumpkin, strawberry and peppermint.
I bought some and made marshmallow fondant and covered the gingerbread cookies with these thanks to this post. They tasted great however dh prefers them without the gingerbread without fondant.
i didn't see the gingerbread, but i did find the caramel/vanilla swirl:
and the Cinnamon Bun:
i snatched those up ... for some reason my local grocery store doesn't carry these items but Walmart does!
Great idea. Might have to try it myself!
Cinnamon Bun marshmallows sound yummy! Need to try those on my snickerdoodle cake recipe!
While we are at, the chocolate ones are great in the MMF recipe.
