Marshmallows


Camy here with yet another really random and not very spiritual post. But you all love me anyway, right? Right???

Anyway, I’ve been on a marshmallow kick since Easter. It’s all the fault of those darn Peeps. I love them. I love biting their heads off. (There’s some deep psychological meaning behind that, but I’m going to ignore that.)

I’m dying for the chocolate caramel toffee marshmallow from Vosges Chocolate (the pic above). Doesn’t that look absolutely decadent?

There’s also supposed to be a really good homemade marshmallow recipe, but I don’t know what it is. Anybody know? Homemade marshmallows are supposed to be ten times better than store bought stuff, but I’m not sure why or how since I haven’t tried a homemade one yet.

Are you a marshmallow fan? I know not everyone likes the texture or consistency. I don’t know why I love them so much. My dentist hates it when I start eating more marshmallows. I want to make my dentist happy, but sometimes The Marshmallow Calls To Me.

I love marshmellows. I am kind of a peep freak. haha. but I only eat the pink ones, weird I know. :) haha. However the Cadbury Creme eggs are my favorite, and they are who made me gain a pound over spring break. I KNOW IT! haha.

Me, too. Peeps are evil and addictive. Somehow that drew me to the candy counter where the cashier asked if I was buying all that to stock up for the movies!! NOT!! Tomorrow I will begin the marshmallow and chocolate withdrawal process and hope I don't get the shakes!

Oh we were just discussing marshmallows last night... We were having s'mores and talking about how none of us really like marshmallows but we love s'mores. Well for me, I don't like the sugar content of marshmallows. But I love the flavor of that toasted sugar ;) not to mention the chocolate and graham cracker <3

Mmmm. Marshmallow. Yum. I haven't tried homemade marshmallows, but I know you can get them on Etsy. I love Peeps too, but they are best, of course, after they have sat out for about a week. I call it "curing" them. My husband calls me weird. :)

I had a marshmellow recently after many years without... it was an explosion of sweetness.

Now, chocolate... I LOVE chocolate...

My favorites are chocolate covered chocolate marshmallows but very hard to find. I've been quite content with the dark chocolate covered (white) marshmallow treats I've been finding at Walgreens (Christmas, Valentine's Day, Easter). I think its made by Russel Stover (cheaper brands are not very good).

I've never made homemade either. But they look delicious! I second the smores - MMMMMM. :)

I saw the photo and I immediately thought it was one of those chocolate-caramel-coconut girl scout cookies on top of a marshmallow and covered in chocolate. [Pardon me while I wipe the drool off my screen.]

The actual treat sounds awfully good too.

Makay! My fellow Peep freak! Although I have to admit I have never particularly liked the Cadbury eggs.

Carrie--And what's wrong with stocking up??? ;)

L.E.--I loooooove smores and esp I love slightly burning my marshmallows. I know it's bad for me but it's oh so yummy!
