Last Saturday I made marshmallows. I made half of them regular, and the other half chocolate. I made the chocolate marshmallows by adding some chopped 60% Ghirardelli chocolate chips into the marshmallows before they set, and by rolling the finished marshmallows in cocoa powder. Surprisingly, the marshmallows were quite easy to make.
I got my recipe from one of my favorite cook books, Jam It, Pickle It, Cure It by Karen Solomon. Every time I look at this book, I get excited about making something.
We took the marshmallows with us when we went to IL to visit family, and came home with a few regular marshmallows left. I might just need to eat one right now…
O.K., here are a few pictures.
