This recipe is one of my favorite make ahead desserts but ancient-I got it via my mother from an aunt-I think it is probably well over 50 years old. Whenever they invented the marshmallow... When did they invent the marshmallow?

I loved how easy this was to make, and the texture was great - like a huge soft & fluffy marshmallow. It's pretty sweet and a small piece is more than enough to satisfy. This took a while to set up for me (about 6 hours or so), but I didn't need it right way so it was not a problem.

Rich and creamy but not too rich. This is a very light dessert with the whipped cream folded in. I put the pan in the freezer a while to firm them up enough to cut and they taste very good; sort of like an ice cream bar. These hit the spot!! Made for Newest Zaar Tag February 2010.
