Here's the deal. I hate the smell of peppermint, guys. I hate it so much. Like, when I'm making these, I have to tie a bandana over my face just to get through it. I'm a total baby about it. BUT, I had a whole cohort of chefs test these peppermint marshmallows out for me, and the verdict is that they "taste like if a candy cane were a marshmallow," so, if you're into that (and I don't sincerely don't understand why you would be), you'll like these.
