Advent Day 4 - Marshmallows!

So I saw this episode of Good Eats where AB made marshmallows, and I've been dying to try it ever since. Thanks to my sister-in-law for loaning me a mixer, Boo and I gave it a try one afternoon.

So it was really fun to make them, and I think they turned out reasonably well for not using a candy thermometer. I didn't think they tasted great...unless they were in cocoa or dipped in chocolate. Guess I just love that store bought taste.

Here they are in the pan before we cut them.
And here is Boo, who loved them, chocolate or not.


  1. Hey Andrea,

    Looks like you guys have been very busy with your advent calendar-- what fun! Do you still make the fitted sheets for the pack n' plays? Ru has been a little rough on the two sets we got when she was born and we're looking to replace them for baby #2. If you don't, I may be able to replicate your genius, but I'm sure that you can do it better and I'd like to send business your way. I've got a few other friends interested in them also.

    Thanks! Merry Christmas!

  2. I saw that episode! Good stuff. I have been a fan of marshmallows since the 5th grade. That is when my class went on a field trip to Jet Puff marshmallows factory.
