The Better Home Made Marshmallows

August 10, 2012

I truly feel guilty for not posting in ages! This deep embarrassment for abandoning my blog must be akin to the feeling a mother gets when she loses her child in a department store because she was too busy admiring clearance cashmere.
But anyway, I did manage to create these delicious marshmallows that are a far cry from the bagged confections that have been sitting on grocery store shelves for who knows how long. Dense, soft, and flecked with vanilla bean, these treats are all the more special when made from scratch.
{Whisking the egg whites}
{Coat the pan. Especially the corners!}
{Using the offset spatula to lift from pan}
{Removing excess sugar and cornstarch}

With temperatures in the 100s, any warm drink is out of the question, but come winter time I assure you I will be indulging in one or two with a cup of hot chocolate.  I used this recipe from one of my favorite cookbooks, Miette.
Home made marshmallows are pretty decadent, but if you're feeling as spoiled as Marie Antoinette on her most angst filled teenage days, go ahead and dip these in some milk chocolate.
