Peppermint Marshmallows

This recipe was originally to make gourmet marshmallows for hot chocolate. However, while tasting fruits of my labor I have discovered they are even better as candy. I especially like the chocolate vanilla marshmallows with dark chocolate. But, if you are a milk chocolate fan by all means indulge you passion.
