Homemade marshmallows we brought to the market Friday.Â They are so light and special.Â A real treat – handmade with love and far beyond anything bought at the store.Â WonderfulÂ dipped in dark chocolate,Â or melted into hot cocoa, or just as they are.Â Â
Today we made another batch to give as Christmas gifts.Â Â Â I know they made the rounds of various crafty mama blogs awhile ago, which is what inspired me to start making them in the first place – I have learned so many great crafts, and found so many great recipes from so many talented mamas!Â You can find the recipe here.Â (I also found out that you canÂ substitute Kosher vegetarian gelatin in a 1:1 ratioÂ for the regular gelatin in this recipe if that better suits your dietary needs.)Â
Thes are so easy and so much fun for children to make (and enjoy!).Â But oh, the clean up!Â
And I didn’t even get shots of the powdered sugar clouds in my kitchen!Â
On this unusually snow-covered, wintery day in the Pacific Northwest, we’re wishing you a mug of hot cocoa topped off with a big fluffy marshmallow!
