Jane and Hubby love marshmallows. Not quite sure why, but I was more than happy to indulge them if that meant working on a new sweet treat recipe.
We did plain ones and then decorated some green ones for St. Patrick’s Day using sanding sugar.
Of course, we also did some chocolatey ones.
Like my little shamrock?
We loosely followed the Chocolate-Dipped Marshmallows recipe from the April 2012 issue of “O” Magazine. By loosely, I mean Jane did all the measuring, pouring, and stirring, so the amounts weren’t exact or perfectly sifted, and we didn’t use a candy thermometer. I just looked at the boiling mix and thought, “That looks about right.”
We got lucky and it was!
It was surprisingly easy to make these and I have so many flavors brewing in my head now. The hardest part was waiting the 6 hours for the marshmallows to set.
But it was so worth it!
I couldn’t find the recipe online, but here‘s a similar one. The one we used was adapted by Oprah from a recipe in Shauna Sever’s Marshmallow Madness! Dozens of Puffalicious Recipes.
Happy Treat Making!
