Marshmallows

For my friends who have been asking for my marshmallow recipe...

I have grand plans for step-by-step pics, but Robbie Burns said it best, The best laid plans of mice and men gang aft agley. Today you get one photo of what marshmallows look like when they're ready to be eaten. :)



It's really amazing how easy it is to make your own marshmallows. I love playing with flavors and coming up with new treats. I also love bringing marshmallows to work, where someone will always proclaim the current presentation 'your best ones yet'. So, yes, they're a good ego boost for me.

There is one requirement for this recipe - a stand mixer. Frothing up that gelatinous goodness takes 10-15 minutes on high speed, which most hand mixers just can't tolerate. My Cuisinart stand mixer, on the other hand, mixes like a champ and thus far has never complained about all the hard work.

Another note - I haven't tried using anything but gelatin in my marshmallows, so they are not vegeta…
