Peppermint Marshmallows

This is another newcomer to the DeMartino pantheon of holiday treats. It was only a couple of years' back that I discovered the glory of homemade marshmallows. They aren't simple, but once you get the hang of it, they're not hard, either. And when you show up at a friend's house with a box of these, it's tough to resist the bright, cool aroma of peppermint once you take the lid off. It's like the opposite of Pandora's Box.
