I won’t bore you with all the logistics so much as point you towards this recipe we used. And really, it’s mostly just boiling things, followed by mixing things, and then adding other things slowly while the mixer is on. (super technical terms, no?)
The best part of making marshmallows?
a) flavoring them however you want
b) having a giant pan of marshmallow in your fridge
We made vanilla marshmallows but you could, of course, go crazy-like and make butterscotch or peppermint or coconut. And add coloring! And then cut them into cute shapes!
Or you could just eat the not-yet-totally-set marshmallow fluff with a spoon, directly out of the pan. You know, hypothetically.
Have you ever made marshmallows from scratch? Any luck?
