For the past few years, I have tried to make a new candy confection over the Christmas season to bag and give out to friends. This year, I knew I wanted to tackle homemade marshmallows.
Using the techniques from these two recipes, I created the basic marshmallow. Then I saw this idea and loved it.
Making marshmallows is not difficult, but it does take time and a little patience. Oh, and you should just be prepared for a gooey, sticky mess.
What starts as just humble gelatin....
...soon turns to this!
And after a few hours in the fridge....
These keep for about a week. They are yummy in hot chocolate, dipped in fondue, or just plain!
And, regrettably, I probably consumed half of them myself.
