Homemade Marshmallows: Flavor Suggestions + Roasting Question

Aloo0628 | Mar 5, 2013 06:08 AM

In celebration of the weather (finally!) warming up a bit, I'm having people over to hang out around our firepit and plan to whip up a batch of homemade marshmallows. I want to do something more interesting than the usual vanilla bean variety, and have two questions for you fine folks:

1. I am thinking of making them espresso-flavored using a few tablespoons of instant espresso per a recipe I found online. But I worry that the espresso flavoring might burn unattractively when the marshmallows are roasted. Thoughts?

2. Any other fun flavor suggestions? Am toying with chocolate and peppermint too, and don't really want to do fruit flavored b/c people will want to make s'mores.
