Marshmallows are quickly becoming my Valentine.
It seems every year around this time I make a batch of marshmallows. If you’ve never had a fresh marshmallow, you’re missing out.
I decided I was going to make some s’mores marshmallows for my students for valentine’s day this year, with a tag attached that said ‘we need s’more students like you’ – jokingly another teacher said I needed to make some with a ‘we need s’more teachers like you’ tag as well, and of course – I did. I mean, I had to right?
These are super simple, if you’ve never made marshmallows before I’m here to tell you not to be intimidated. You boil the sugars and water together, then add it to the gelatine and whip for about 10 minutes, then spread it into your pan and let it set up overnight.
I wanted to make s’mores marshmallows, so I made vanilla marshmallows, and rolled them in graham cracker crumbs and topped it off with dark chocolate. No need for a fire!
Simply follow this recipe, here – and instead of coating the pan in icing sugar, spread graham cracker crumbs on the bottom of the pan, add the marshmallow and spread evenly, and top with more graham cracker crumbs.
Once set overnight, turn it out onto a cookie sheet and cover in more graham cracker crumbs. Cut into squares, rotating all sides in the crumbs and drizzle or dip in dark chocolate.
You can also try Peanut Butter Marshmallows.
Hope you all have s’more love this valentine’s day.
