Homemade Sugary Goodness


I remember the first time I realized that all marshmallows didn’t come from a plastic bag in the grocery store. We were at a fancy restaurant for our anniversary and I ordered the s’more for dessert—made with a homemade marshmallow. It was amazing! Never did I think I’d taste anything like it again.

But I was wrong. My daughter had a hankering to try her hand at marshmallow-making and I can highly recommend the results! In fact, I’m not sure I’ll be able to eat the store bought kind again. When that squishy, sugary connection sank into my hot chocolate and melted—oh my word!

Then she used them to make a “s’more” topping for her cheesecake. And while I didn’t taste those results, I’m sure it was amazing, too.

Have you ever eaten a homemade marshmallow? If not, seize the opportunity, should it arise. I don’t think you’ll regret it!

I just read that same thing in Cooking Light and they had a recipe. Guess I will rethink my initial reaction of "no way."

No, I never have!!! Are they REALLY good?

If I don't like plain marshmallows, except in s'mores and Rice Krispie treats, will it really make a difference?

They are REALLY good, Patti! They melt in your mouth instead of chewing and chewing like the store-bought kind.

Cheryl, yours are on the way!
