I don’t like to post too many sugary recipes on my blog, but sometimes, you gotta have some sugar! I’ve always wanted to try making my own marshmallows and with Valentine’s Day coming up, I thought this was the perfect opportunity to make some delicious marshmallows! But, not just plain marshmallows, strawberry marshmallows! I was really unsure about how these would come out, but they came out perfectly! So pretty and delicious! Hubs didn’t care for them, but he doesn’t really like marshmallows to begin with. These are delicious to eat just plain, but they are even more delicious in a cup of hot cocoa OR with s’mores (o.m.f.g! so good!)!
So I want to point out three things for this recipe, aside from the ingredients, that is! First, you need a candy thermometer. You can get one pretty cheap on Amazon or Bed, Bath, and Beyond. Second, I highly recommend using a stand mixer for these. The mixture needs to be mixed on a high speed for about 10 minutes. You can certainly try it with a hand mixer, but be forewarned that you are going to get quite the arm workout and it will take you longer than 10 minutes! And third, patience. Once you mix these up, they will need to set for at least 10-12 hours, if not overnight.
