lovely paper...i got some pretty paper from Michaels....the martha stewart line.....fun...I don't have a shopco in town! Never heard of it in California?! Happy day!


yum... these look delicious Sandy. We're big hot cocoa fans at our house. I'm going to try these, thanks for the inspiration :)


I'm trying the marshmallows tonight!
I'm a wrapping paper junkie -- you just can't have enough ribbon, little berries, random sparkly things... The prettier, the better. I also ALWAYS have a stash of double stick tape -- for seamless wrapping, of course! (I learned that trick from my wrapping duty days at Dillard's Dept. Store!)

Yummy! I am def. going to try these, they look delish!

Oh, do you have a link to where to buy the paper?


Those marshmallows look divine and oh how I miss shopko! I loved shopping there! I wish we had one locally!


Love the wrapping!!


Sandi, you are an evil temptress! LOL! I think chocolate and peppermint is my favorite flavor combination ever.

digging the paper, where did you get it?

I looked on the website, but I can't find any wrapping paper! But it's from Shopko, so if you have one where you are, I'm sure they'll have it in the store.



YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMY marshmallows Sandi! Candy making and baking is part of what makes the holidays so special for me & I always love seeing someone else love the tradition as well :) Thanks for sharing. OH!!!! And LOL and Shopko--we always called it Shop KNOCK OUT! Sadly, no knock outs around here but your green paper is beautimous--I'll have to share the fab wrapping papers I found at Hobby Lobby this year. You'd love them. Happy Holidays!


Those marshmallows look so yummy-licious! That would be a fantastic alternative to the whole cookie plate thing we usually do! But ... what is a whole lot of marshmallows exactly? No where does it say JUST how many it can make ... so using a half recipe ... how many did you get?

Sandi Henderson

Oh what a good question! I have to disagree with the "whole lot of marshmallows" part. I made the full recipe and I got 2 9 x 13 pans of thin marshmallows. It was enough to give to 6 families along with a baggy of cocoa and to have a few for each of us. The next time, I will make a double batch. Even if we aren't giving them away-they keep for a long time apparantly.



Delish! Love the pretty wrapping paper too. I'll have to try some candy making myself sometime. The pictures turned out really nicely.

Score on that paper. I always wrap my wall art and hang it up for some dramatic, cheap Christmas decor. That paper would look great on my wall:>)


yummy! we dipped pretzel rods in dark & white chocolate today. there is just something about slathering chocolate on already yummy things!! =)

tomorrow is toffee making day! =)

Linda Harre

Such a sweet post! I am going to have to try the marshmellows. I don't normally make candy either. I am trying my hand at almond bark this year:D I love to wrap too! You said it all:D Happy Holidays, Linda

Your marshmallows look yummy and I love your paper. I would love to have it in both colors, but darn it - no Shopko, here.


Mmmmm... those chocolate covered candy-cane flavored marshmallows look delectable! There goes my diet! LOL! I think I may actually have to try making some! :)
Cute wrapping paper too. I found a great one a Joann's the other day... it had a tone-on-tone harlequin pattern in apple green tones and I am a sucker for harlequin so I was ALL OVER THAT!!!
