To try and get myself out of my little pity party I decided to make one of my favorite comfort foods hot chocolate and marshmallows. I love hot chocolate, it just makes you feel warm all over and the milk (I like to think) makes it healthy. The best part are the marshmallows on top, they get all gooey and soft from the hot chocolate. There is nothing better in the world.
So I decided to make my own homemade marshmallows. It was so easy!!! I made them while waiting for my husband to finish walking the dog so we could go to the store. The one trick about marshmallows is some non-stick cooking spray. Spray the spatula you use to smooth out the mixture and any cookie cutters you use. Also you must make sure to mix equal amounts of powered sugar and corn starch and sprinkle them over the marshmallows to ensure they don’t stick together when you place them in storage. They were so easy and good I can’t wait to try different variations and flavors. People are so impressed when you make your own marshmallows little do they know how easy they are.
