Marshmallows are surprisingly easy to make. Go ahead, turn your nose but these infinitely better than their cousins in the plastic bag. And best of all, with a few modifications you can make any flavor you can dream of.
Make the marshmallows as directed in this recipe. Add the coloring midway through the whipping so that it disperses evenly. Once the marshmallow is set, cut out and roll in sugar.
This was my first time making homemade marshmallows. I followed the recipe as directed but they came out crinkly. The mixture set up as I was pressing it into the pans. In the future I think I will whip it a little less so that I get a smooth surface. Also, the sugar didn't stick at first so I used a barely damp pastry brush to wet the surface of the peep and that did the trick.
We woke up Easter morning to fresh snow. These guys enjoyed their frolic in the powder :)
