inpire me with chocolate mint marshmallow pops

I made these little Nestle chocolate mint marshmallows to hand out for Saint Patrick’s Day.    Are giant marshmallows  always available?  This is the first time I have ever noticed them.  The marshmallows size is what inspired me to do something with them.   It took about 3 minutes for Myles, Mimi and Brad to discover that they make an excellent tool for food fights.  We had giant marshmallow bombs flying for hours.   I’m actually still a five year old at times.    I’m keeping giant marshmallows on had for those moments when know one expects the attach.   Make everyday an event.  xoxo
