Marshmallow Inspired

So a few weeks ago I was rushing through Meijer trying to pick up a few last minute items I had actually forgotten the previous day when I was grocery shopping when all of a sudden an "end-cap" display stopped me dead in my tracks. What could have caught my attention so much you ask? Well, it was something I had never seen before and instantly knew would be going home with me...Pumpkin Spiced Marshmallows.

 Have you seen them at your store? I just love all these creative & yummy flavors they are coming out with! Last year we discovered the Peppermint ones at Christmas time (so delicious in hot cocoa!), and then this summer I used the Mint Chocolate ones for my first s'mores ever! And now the perfect ones for autumn! I wasn't even sure what I would do with them but I knew I had to come up with something!

After about a week of sitting in my cupboard I finally knew what I wanted to do. A snack mix, of course. I just love trail mixes and coming up with different combos is both challenging for me, and fun for Alex. Last Halloween I shared with you my Goblin Mix and then more recently Monkey Munch I served at his birthday party. They just make such great party foods, or even after school snacks. For this one, I wanted every ingredient to be fall colored, so it took a little extra effort, but the result is both pretty and yummy! If your child's class is having a fall party, put some of this in cute treat sacks and the kiddies will love it! And be sure to be on the lookout for new flavors of marshmallows coming to a baking aisle near you!
