So stoked! I've been waiting to try these forever. They're soooo good and so cute! I love making homemade marshmallows and it's retarded easy! If you ever wondered what marshmallows are made of... it's basically sugar and gelatin. Complex, right? Certainly not the healthiest of recipes, but what on here is? The best part about making homemade marshmallows is flavouring them any way you want... vanilla (classic), cinnamon, lemon, orange, strawberry, almond, peppermint, coconut... I could go on. I used MAPLE! How good would that be with hot chocolate? Damn. If you're feeling especially adventurous, coat them in chocolate, candy or toasted coconut.
WARNING: ATTEMPTING THESE MAKE YOUR KITCHEN, YOUR TOOLS AND YOU UNBELIEVABLY STICKY AND COATED IN SUGAR.
and here are the photos of the mess.
it starts as a mixture of sugar, corn syrup and water. so nutritious.
then you dump it into a bowl of gelatin and beat. and you beat for a very longgggg time......
