I was surfing the internet and found this recipe for marshmallows. I have since tried a few others and I wished I hadn't wasted my time and ingredients. For one thing, this recipe is extremely easy to follow. (You don't even need a candy thermometer.)Secondly, this recipe is foolproof and super easy to make. The only suggestion I have is to use a quality Vanilla extract as the aroma and flavor is unbelieveable! If you've never had homemade marshmallows before, you are in for a real treat! The texture is so much softer and the flavor is well, ummmm.... Marshmallow melting moment. Yummy. I have a lot of fun making these with my two year old daughter. I love watching her lick the beaters. Have some fun in your kitchen for a change. These are wonderful with your favorite Hot Cocoa. The list goes on.
