Hone-made Marshmallows!

I Love HOT CHOCOLATE!!! Especially with marshmallows! So I thought, “Hey. Hubby makes hot chocolate from scratch, why don’t I make some marshmallows from scratch?” So that’s what I did. Alton Brown from the food network has a great recipe which can be found HERE.

First mix together your water, sugar, corn syrup, and salt into a fairly large sauce pan.

While its heating up, add ½ cup of water and 3 packets of unflavored gelatin to your mixer so it’s ready to go.

Using a candy thermometer, raise the temperature to 240 F. Make sure you stir that way you don’t scorch the bottom.

Remove from heat and add to mixer

Whip until it get bright white and fluffy. So about 15 minutes.

Once it has finished mixing place in a poor man’s piping bag aka Ziploc with the corner cut off.

On a cookie sheet that is covered in parchment paper then lightly dusted with powdered sugar, pipe out long strips of your yummy soon to be marshmallows.

I let my mallows sit overnight then took a pizza cutter to them to cut them into little pieces.

This makes TONS of marshmallow goo so I decided to make some Gluten Free Rice Krispies’ treats!

And while this was all going on, Quail is being loved on by her Nana and Pop.

I can't wait to try it in Hubby's hone-made hot chocolate!
