Family Fun and FOOD!! Tis the Holiday season! I've got a few recipes you can try using Dandies Mini Marshmallows.
ABOUT Dandies are the first Non-GMO Project Verified marshmallows on the market. Indistinguishable from their conventional counterparts, these light and fluffy air-puffed balls of fun are made with all-natural ingredients and completely free of gelatin, artificial ingredients, and high fructose corn syrup. Dandies Marshmallows are also free of wheat, gluten and corn, 100% vegan, and certified kosher by the Chicago Rabbinical Council.
Dandies & Caramel Bread PuddingThis bread pudding recipe is super easy and so comforting. Best enjoyed on a lazy Holiday morning when you have decided to stay in PJ's all morning!

Waldorf Salad The crunchy sweetness of the grapes contrasts the slightly sour bite of the apples. The fluffy marshmallows and vanilla yogurt
make this feel like you’re eating dessert, but the walnuts make it filling.
3 cups apple
2 cups Marshmallows
1 cup celery
1 cup of sliced grapes
1/2 cup Walnut Pieces
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
Mix all ingredients until well blended.Serve immediately. Or, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. It’s cold and fresh with a lot of different textures, which I love.
