The Making of a Marshmallow-Part II

Okay, so this morning we finished our marshmallows, and boy are they yummy…way better than the ones you buy at the store! We’ve learned a couple lessons along the way, though, and thought we would pass them along to y’all. One, when it says to let them cool and harden a bit, that doesn’t mean overnight, as they seem to form a bit of a crust on the tops if you do that-no real harm done, but they’d be better without the crusty tops, and Two, a smaller cookie sheet would’ve worked better than a larger one for a batch this size, because we would’ve liked for them to be a bit taller than they were. So, for this recipe, I’d suggest that you use a small sheet pan (1/2 sheet would work fine), and only let them harden for an hour or so. Anyway, here’s what they looked like last night:

K and Daddy making sure the marshmallows were coated in the cornstarch/powdered sugar mixture so that they didn’t stick to one another.
