I found this neat recipe in a old cookbook.I really love finding unique things like this. It sounds a bit silly with the time it requires,overnight,for 2 nights.But,really,other than that,it is a really great recipe. Besides,you can brag to all your friends that you made home-made marshmallows! 8) heh (Prep time,of course,includes refridgerating,and overnight steps)
