More Marshmallow Goodness

Well Herman Miller didn't pick our office art as a winner, but I have forgiven them. Especially when they provide such important information as how to make Carmel Peanut Puffs.

Oh yessy. And it just so happens I am on a big marshmallow kick. I enjoyed Greta's diary entry about her marshmallow memories. I think this treat elevates marshmallows to an even higher plain. If my coworkers are nice, I might make them for work tomorrow.
Here are the ingredients...

14 oz pkg. carmels
3 tbsp. water
30 lg marshmallows (or 50 mini marshmallows if you are Greta)
1 1/2 cup chopped salted peanuts

then you....

Place caramels and water in 1 quart glass measure or casserole. Heat on full power for 2 1/2 to 4 minutes or until melted. Stir half way through melting. Dip marshmallows into caramel syrup, using toothpicks and roll to coat completely. Roll in peanuts. Place on waxed paper. Let dry at room temperature. If syrup gets thick add 1/2 teaspoon water, stir in and heat for 30 seconds or until softened.
