Those things up there? They’re springy. Stickyish. Sweet and sugared, square and bouncebouncebouncy. Those, my friends, are marshmallows.
They’re actually Halloween-themed marshmallows, on account of they’re orange. That’s on account of the food coloring which, of course, is on account of the upcoming jack o’lanterned holiday. So, you know. Themes.
I’ve been wanting to make my own marshmallows for awhile now. When I worked in the kitchen at Liddabit Sweets, I made marshmallow all the time – sticky, gooey stuff we’d spread as filling for some sick (like, si-hiiiick, in a good way) candy bars, but until now I’ve never tackled the at-home marshmallow set. Now that it’s done, it’s going to be a thing. I’m pretty sure of it. I’ve got long lists of mallowy flavors in my head, so I’m just saying: consider yourself warned.
