Can you guess what yummy treat this is?
Homemade marshmallows. That’s right. HOMEMADE marshmallows.
These are the best marshmallows you will ever eat!
It’s a Martha Stewart recipe. You can find it HERE.
Here’s what it looks like when the marshmallow cream is setting up. (I’m not gonna go into the specifics of getting it to this stage, you’ll have to click on the link to the recipe….I PROMISE it’s easy)
And here it is after you place the LARGE marshmallow on a confectioner’s sugar coated surface.
That’s one honkin’ marshmallow!
It’s amazing what corn syrup, sugar, and unflavored gelatin can do together!
Now the fun begins.
Slicing the individual marshmallows.
Rolling them in confectioner’s sugar.
More slicing. Remember that’s one big marshmallow!
And at last, 72 (6 dozen) big marshmallows.
And here’s how they turned out…
SHEER PERFECTION! (Just ask my husband)
These will make great homemade gifts given with Godiva hot chocolate or your own homemade cocoa. (I’d add some peppermint sticks, too)
Find the recipe HERE.
Wrap these in cellophane gift bags and kids would love it!
Oh just think of the S’mores these would make!!!
