Homemade marshmallows. Super soft, fluffy, sugary but not too sweet.
These marshmallows are, actually, really easy to make (despite the lengthy instructions): boil sugar and water on the stove for a while, let cool and then beat with electric mixer for 15-20 minutes with softened plain gelatin. Pour in a pan and let set before cutting into squares and tossing in icing sugar.
I would have taken a hot chocolate photo, but 5 kids just inhaled their warm drinks – melty marshmallows and all. Definitely a ringing endorsement.
In addition to the one kid who proclaimed that these were “…better than fake because they ain’t made from pig Jell-O!”
