So I never answered last weeks topic because well.. let’s face it.. I have little ones and a packet type cocoa is almost all I ever have time for! That made with milk, and topped with marshmallows, fluff or whipped cream (depending on the mood I’m in) is about as extravagant as it gets around here….
But I will address this weeks topic. Which honestly isn’t that far off of last weeks topic… but I wanted to include it because I wanted to talk about making homemade marshmallows. We began making them a few years ago when my middle child asked me where marshmallows came from.. and I honestly had NO CLUE how they were made… so.. I researched (aka googled) and got an easy recipe and got busy making my first ever batch of marshmallows. It’s not all that time consuming, and the Littles think it’s great fun.. so we’ve made a few batches each winter to enjoy… this year I’m going to try for flavored types :-)
There are a slew of recipes out there to try…
All the recipes are nearly the same… so you can’t go wrong. We used the last link the first time we tried so that we could be sure we were doing it correctly. I was doing it with a 3 year old, so his ability to see the progress photos was nice. This year though I think I’ll try some of the others and alter flavors :-) wish me luck… :-)
