Picture of Cinnamon Heart Marshmallows
 Valentine's Day was over and we still had lots of cinnamon hearts lying around, so we decided to make marshmallows out of them! These marshmallows taste great in hot chocolates, or just on their own. You can change the amount of sugar to cinnamon hearts ratio if you want, but we think they taste perfect this way.

As Kiteman says, you can probably make these out of any hard candy in place of the cinnamon hearts, as long as the candy doesn't have a soft center or it is a caramel candy, like Werther's or something. I haven't tried it yet though, so I'm not 100% sure.

"Cinnamon hearts" are just cinnamon flavoured sugar-candy, aren't they?

So you could use this method to add any candy-flavour to marshmallows, yes?

I haven't tried it, but I'm pretty sure you could, as long as it is hard candy.
