$25 and under gift No. 19: Red Hook marshmallows

Come December, we put the lemonades and ales away and let warm beverages carry us through the brutal winter: from powdered Swiss Miss to fancy European sipping style, the touch of warm chocolate to your lips can act like a buffer against the harsh winter winds. The holidays, however, demand something a little more festive than the tiny flecks of marshmallow mica buried in brown sand. Red Hook’s Baked gives you a stocking-stuffer-sized option to step up your game with this gift pack of flavored marshmallows. Choose from eight-packs of vanilla, chocolate or peppermint ($18 for three). The mallows are also good for s’mores and snacking right out of the pack.
