Peeps Marshmallow Monsters (Candy Mail) By @Cinabar

Peeps Marshmallow Monsters

Although today has been unprecedentedly warm, the evening has been wet. I don’t mean a little drizzle, I mean bucket after bucket of rain tipping its way down from the sky. This means two things: one that the tub of sweets I bought for trick or treaters barely has a dent in it, and two I’m making a Halloween hot chocolate and staying warm inside. I’m starting off by making Pumpkin Spice hot chocolate from Hotel Chocolat, because what is more perfect than that for Halloween.

Today requires some sort of decoration for my hot chocolate and what better than Peeps. Peeps are an American company who make marshmallows, usually chick-shaped, but for Halloween and Christmas you do get quite a bit of variation. These monsters look like Frankenstein, and are quite a bright colour, which weirdly puts me off a little. Only a little, once I drowned the monster in the hot chocolate I was more than happy to eat him!

There was a lightly crispy sugar coating on the Peeps and under the green was a vanilla white marshmallow that was supper soft and nicely sweet. They are fun and they go with hot chocolate so very well. I do love Peeps and am excited to have also purchased some Christmas marshmallows, but it might be a bit soon for them right now! Happy Halloween!
