I’ve seen a lot of recipes recently for homemade marshmallows and I’ve basically ignored them. I mean, making marshmallows is not really high on my cooking “to-do” list if you know what I mean. They’re available at the store, they’re cheap and I don’t really care about them. That being said, I have a little project in mind for my daughter’s upcoming birthday party and homemade marshmallows are part of the plan. So, I gave them a test run yesterday. I was a little nervous about my culinary abilities on this one. I thought it would be a disaster. I am pleased to report that I was wrong. Not only are homemade marshmallows ridiculously easy to make, they really are delicious.
This is the recipe I used. I would only say this; for the cornstarch/powdered sugar combo, go less cornstarch, more sugar. I also read somewhere that you can use shredded coconut instead of the sugar/cornstarch. I might try that soon. The best part about homemade marshmallows though? Your kids think you’re the BEST MOM EVER, or at least that’s what I was told.
You know where these fluffy little pillows of sugary heaven are best? On top of a steaming cup of homemade hot cocoa. Because you’ve thrown that store bought stuff out, right?
