I made these marshmallows! Marshmallow making, while a tad process-driven, was easier than I thought it would be. Interestingly, marshmallows are made very quickly, with a lot of tiny, important steps all happening at once. It is exciting, watching the gelatin bloom and seeing the syrup-gelatin whip up into big, fluffy mallowness. Then, waiting. And some more waiting. When the marshmallows are finally set, cut them up into cute squishy squares of sugar.
I followed the recipe from the Love & Olive Oil blog. In the interest of a successful first batch, I did not make any substitutions. I think I might try honey instead of corn syrup next time, and a half cup less sugar.
I think I’m going to dip these babies in chocolate and white sprinkles to send to my parents.
Wouldn’t it be lovely to receive homemade espresso edibles in the mail?
