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!

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!!!

I printed out a recipe for homemade marshmallows a few months ago but never made them. I still have it on my "list". I think they must be wonderful. Is it somewhat like divinity?

Ivy and Elephants said...

I have heard that these are incredible, but your idea of giving them as gifts with some hot chocolate seems divine! Thanks for a great gift giving idea to complete my list!
Hugs and happy holidays,

Totally want to make these over the holidays. I hope mine turn out as nice as yours. Did they taste better than the packaged ones?
