I've seen beautiful, fluffy, cubed marshmallows at specialty food stores before, but never thought I would be able to make them myself. When I agreed to bring the s'more fixings on our weekend camping trip, I figured this was as good a time as any to give 'em a try (and bring some Jet Puffed as backups). I scanned my go-to recipe sites for the least daunting one and found this recipe on Smitten Kitchen. I followed her step-by-step instructions and was surprised to find myself breezing through it. I was happy with the final product, which toasted perfectly over our campfire and drew rave reviews.
As an added bonus to my marshmallow success, I recently came across this sea salt caramel hot cocoa at Target! I whipped up a mug, and I must say, it's a match made in marshmallow heaven!
