Today we take Victoria back to school. I'm going to miss my girl! To make her return a little sweeter, we made home made marshmallows last night. First time ever and I thought they would be difficult. They are SO easy! I used this recipe, and just a note, she says to grease the pan, then line it with saran wrap. Line it first then grease it or your mallows will stick to the wrap!
Like I said, the recipe is super easy. No candy thermometer involved. Boil the syrup for a minute, add to the gelatin and water and whip on high for 12 minutes.
At this point it is like thick marshmallow cream, but get it in the pan fast because it stiffens even more pretty quickly!
We started out tossing them in powdered sugar, but we didn't have enough and Earl suggested we try cocoa. With the sugar in the marshmallows it isn't bitter at all! Just delicious.
And what did we do with our home made marshmallows? Packaged them up with hot cocoa and candy cane stirring sticks for a sweet new years treat for the girls on her floor!
