Over at BC Eggs: Homemade Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows
If I were to be completely honest, I would tell you that I’ve never really liked marshmallows. I’m not sure if it’s the texture or their tooth aching sweetness, but other than in my childhood cereal squares I’ve never been a fan. However, in my search for making all sorts of things homemade, I’ve continually come across recipes for homemade marshmallows, and thought I’d give them a shot.
Oh. My. Goodness.
Like most things, marshmallows made from scratch are nothing like their store bought counterparts. Fluffy, light, and much fresher tasting, they are a completely different treat. They are also very easy to make despite what some people may tell you. If you have a good mixer, the right equipment, and some patience you’ll find that they are in fact no harder than making a batch of homemade cookies. I think the trick is that if this is your very first time making marshmallows, keep it to a small batch so they are easy to handle. Too large and you’ll have marshmallow goo all over your kitchen. This batch makes enough to let you experiment and pop some in a hot chocolate or smoosh between graham crackers with chocolate for a s’more, but not so many you’ll be stuck with tons of them.
Read on for the full recipe over at BC Eggs!
You want this recipe, trust me. We were unable to resist the siren call of these babies in the kitchen, and by the day's end had eaten every single chocolate dipped marshmallow on the counter. Granted, it wasn't the entire batch, but it was more marshmallow I think I've ever eaten in one sitting in my life.
