It’s no secret that fans of Tim Burton’s: The Nightmare Before Christmas love Jack Skellington’s faithful sidekick, Zero. We’re celebrating the spookiest time of year with a treat you can enjoy from now through winter — Zero Marshmallows. We think they make perfect treats on their own and even cuter toppings to your hot chocolate.

The Nightmare Before Christmas is now available on Digital, Movies Anywhere, and Blu-ray (including a Sing-Along Edition!).
