So I thought to celebrate our snow day this week that we could attempt to make homemade marshmallows. I wasn't all that confident (I rarely am when using a candy thermometer), however I was pleasantly surprised. They were super easy and really good. I used the following recipe from Betty Crocker Easy Peppermint Marshmallows. I only made a couple of changes. I used Vanilla extract in place of the Peppermint extract and did not use the food coloring. They were met with rave reviews.
Enjoy with hot cocoa or all by themselves. Such a great treat for our snow day.
