mmm...marshmallows!

cheetobrain | Dec 22, 2008 08:54 PM

I have made 3 batches of marshmallows using recipes from the book Marshmallows - homemade gourmet treats. Each has turned out delicious! I started with the basic recipe which tasted pretty much like a standard marshmallow, but with a great smooth texture. Then I made the coconut mallow and covered it with toasted coconut. These are delicious and went into cello bags tied with ribbons to give to my daughter's teachers. Finally, I made a honey batch using using mesquite honey and covered them in a cinnamon mixture. these have a strong, pure honey taste and the cinnamon helps offset the sweetness a bit. delicious! They are so easy to make, I wish I had started making them sooner as gifts for everyone. You definitely need a stand mixer to make them, the mixture gets really thick as it cools, and you have to mix them for 12 minutes or so.
