I hope everyone had a wonderfully restful Thanksgiving weekend full of family and friends. It seems like there is so much going on right now, I can’t keep it all straight. My kitchen is full of of s’mores, and gift boxes and cellophane wrap as I prepare for a busy holiday sales season (knock on wood). This past weekend was a blast, selling at both Hingham Holiday Market, run by the folks who put on Sowa, and the Castleberry Fairs event at the Shriners. I have been so busy making s’mores that I forgot to announce the change of seasons by bringing back the Gourmet Peppermint Marshmallow S’mores! The time of the Pumpkin Spice and Apple Cider S’mores has come and gone (I really can’t believe how this year has flown by) and the minty-chocolaty goodness of the Peppermint Chip and Peppermint Bark are here.
Lowell’s City of Lights Parade and annual hot chocolate conetest were held over the weekend too. I am beyond thrilled to report that my marshmallows were atop the winning hot chocolate this year for the third year in a row! Andy of Brew’d Awakening and I teamed up again this year to come up with a slammin coco. We started by rimming the cup with a chocolate-caramel mixture and then dipping it in cinnamon-sugar, filled to the brim with rich pumpkin hot chocolate and topped with one of my Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows. It is no surprise that the people of Lowell loved it. We tested it about 5 times, just to make sure that it was perfect. There is no real prize for the hot chocolate contest other than bragging rites, but I could not be more thrilled about being a 3-time champ. Check out the wrap up of the parade here.
It is in fact Cyber Monday and I decided, at the very last minute to offer a sweet deal. Take 20% off your order today (to be shipped this week) with the discount code CYBERMONDAY. Wait there is more! Order over $50 and you will get a free Marshmallow Guide too! Remember, if you live in Lowell you can order online and pick up at Brew’d Awakening in downtown.
Thanks for your help combating brownie boredom, one S’more at a time! And happy holidays!
