How to make Homemade Marshmallows!!!!

Yes…for real.  It is sooooo easy to make your own marshmallows.  I have made three pans in the past two weeks (yes, three), hehe.  I might just be in love with homemade marshmallows.  They seriously took about 20 minutes to make, then they set overnight, and probably about another 20 minutes cutting them up (depending on how small you decide to cut them, the smaller they are the longer it will take).    Yes, I am in love…AND, they’re flavoured!!!!  I mean, eeek!   Where can you go for flavoured marshmallows????


I’m in love.

With marshmallows.

So I was pinteresting one day and came upon this recipe for some gourmet marshmallows and I decided to try it out.  Now, a lot of people don’t like corn syrup.  I don’t care.  I eat it.  I’ll die happy.

Click on the picture to go the website and the recipe.  I’m not going to post the recipe here because I think they deserve the traffic to their blog.

Now, the only problem I have with this recipe is that I have a hand mixer not a stand one.  So, yeah, 12 minutes of standing there holding the mixer, not fun.  But hey, a girl does what she’s gotta do for what she wants.  (smile)

You really do have to try this.  And I think they’d make really cool Christmas gifts for family and friends.  Something unique, right?   And there are really a lot of flavours and colours you could use.  For my get-together on Saturday (for a hot chocolate bar) I made some with vanilla, another batch with peppermint, and one is plain because I simply forgot to add the flavour until after I already had the plastic wrap on it and everything, hehe.  But the plain ones still taste amazing.  Wayyyy better than store-bought marshmallows.  Can I even tell you how much better they taste?  Seriously, you have to try it out yourself.  You KNOW you want to!
