Kahlúa Marshmallows

Kahlua Marshmallows

Here's how you can make and give this delicious gift for Christmas or anytime. While I think one of the best gifts is just a simple bottle of Kahlúa liqueur, I decided that we could go one step further and put it into a gift basket with some other items that go well with Kahlúa. But why stop there? I think my gift basket needs … [Read more...]
