Well, we did get snow. Not quite as much as they originally called for, but at least 6-8 inches. I knew we'd be house bound for at least a day. So we planned ahead with food and entertainment. Make something that can be easy leftovers (check), movie rented (check), hot chocolate (check), marshmallows (check check check). And not those icky old store bought marshmallows that could and probably would withstand a nuclear bomb. No, not those. We enjoyed homemade marshmallows and they were gooooooood. So good I made another batch today with a different flavor extract.
Long story short, I was planning to make candies this year for Easter. And a snow storm was the perfect chance to try out this marshmallow recipe (linked, just click). It's a Martha recipe, but aren't most? ;)
The ingredients are simple enough and the results are FAB! I HIGHLY recommend trying. Not a recipe to make with the kids. The sugar liquid is hot and needs extra adult care to handle, but kids could definitely help with the eating part :)
