Marshmallows

S’mores aren’t just for summer.  They are also suitable when you find out that your student intern from China has never had a marshmallow in her life.  This was something that needed to be corrected right away.  So today, my coworker and I are serving the finest in marshmallow treats.  She has the rice crispie treats covered.  I made some graham crackers and marshmallows for s’mores.

I’ve made homemade s’mores before and they are time consuming but well worth it (even after work on a monday).  The graham cracker recipe comes via Smitten Kitchen.  You can find it here.  I’ve used Ina Garten’s marshmallow recipe in the past and I’ve had no issues with it. Seeing as this is Tuesday and I haven’t made either TWD recipe yet, I had to switch it up and go with Dorie Greenspan’s Marshmallow recipe.  It is early Tuesday morning and I haven’t tried a marshmallow yet but they are set and very cute.  I did make them a little too thin but that’s all on me. You can find the marshmallow recipe on Judy’s blog- she was the original host way back when.

Looking forward to a marshmallow party this afternoon where I’ll get to use my blow torch (mini) at work.  Until then, I’ll be chained to my desk.
