Homemade Marshmallows Part 2

Standard

So, I finished making my first batch of homemade marshmallows last night… drumroll please…

They turned out FANTASTIC!!! I am totally obsessed now with tweaking and perfecting the recipe, really making it my own.  I made plain jane vanilla marshmallows and split the batch in half.  One half I coated with powdered sugar, but the other half I coated in a combination of cinnimon sugar and pumpkin pie spice.  Let me just say, these taste amazing in hot cocoa!  My daughter tested them out over the grill for a yummy roasted marshmallow treat- well, you can see the picture!

So at the end of the day, I was really pleased with the results.  I’m looking forward to trying some different flavoring options.  My next big project will be to create a hot cocoa mix to go with them.  Christmas presents anyone?  I’m super excited!!!
