Homemade marshmallows are easier to make than you think. Soft, sweet, pillowy Vanilla Bean Marshmallows are like no other marshmallow you have eaten. Fun and simple to whip up, you’ll never buy them from a store again.
I’m still waiting for some snow…..it’s 60 degrees today and raining here in the ‘burbs, a gloomy, gray day that doesn’t look like Christmas at all. If it was 40 degrees colder, the rain would be snow and we’d have that beautiful festive blanket fit for a holiday card. Now, those of you that are being buried right this moment…enjoy. I know the grass is always greener or the snow is always whiter on the other side of the country but try to seize the moment….grab a cup of hot chocolate and whip up some homemade marshmallows.
