"Marshmallow World" (sometimes called "A Marshmallow World" or "It's a Marshmallow World") is a popular song that was written in 1949 by Carl Sigman (lyrics) and Peter DeRose (music). It is commonly regarded as a Christmas song, although the lyrics make no mention of the holiday.

The song was first a hit for Bing Crosby (backed by the Lee Gordon Singers and the Sonny Burke Orchestra). Crosby's version, recorded in 1950, peaked at number 24 on the pop singles chart in January 1951. Other artists who recorded the song in 1950 included Ray Anthony, Vic Damone, Johnny Desmond, Arthur Godfrey, and Vaughn Monroe.
