    I know there is someone here who will know how to do this....
    I bought a bag of those new lime marshmallows.. I have visions of turning them into a meringue on sort of a key lime pie...The pie itself will have a crust of toasted coconut,shortbread cookie crumbs and macadamia nuts.. and the filling will be tempered with greek lime yogurt and whatever else get me excited.. Not sure how to transform the marshamallows into a meringue.. Any suggestions? Stay cool.. Nora in the Boise mountains

    Not so sure you can, as the marshmallows have gelatin in them...

    Meringue is made of egg white and sugar, essentially. Marshmallows have egg white and sugar, but also gelatin to help it hold its shape. They are also coated in cornstarch to cut the stickiness. I don't think you'd be able to deconstruct the marshmallow to turn it into a meringue. I do know, though, that meringues can be made using a base of marshmallow cream ("Fluff", etc.), which has little to no gelatin in it. Also, if you're planning to brown the meringue, gelatin melts.
