A Bizarre-o Mystery: Silk soy creamer and the case of the disappearing marshmallows....

visciole | Nov 27, 201101:43 PM

I make hot chocolate with milk, and usually add mini marshmallows. They always melt some in the hot liquid, but remain semi-intact, so you can spoon them up.

Well, a few days ago I ran out of milk and used some Silk soy creamer we had sitting in the fridge from a guest. I won't get into the taste, but let me just say this stuff melted my marshmallows, I mean, completely, so they were barely a wispy reminder on the surface of my cocoa. I thought it was so weird I even repeated the experiment using more marshmallows and the same thing happened. The only variation on my usual version was the Silk soy.

So, do any of you chemistry-minded cooks have any idea what could be in this stuff that would cause the complete disintegration of marshmallows?

And, may I just say -- yuck!
