the unconventional marshmallow

via chik 'n pastry

I saw these marshmallows on Chik N' Pastry and I must say they have the most unique recipe I have have ever seen, color excluded. Cocoa powder and chile powder are included in the list of ingredients, I am intrigued to say the least. My only question, are homemade marshmallows hard and stiff or still soft? I kind of like the idea of a stiff homemade marshmallow. One way or the other pink marshmallows would be very fun for the month of February!

  1. I'm coming out of lurking to comment for the first time. :) i made homemade marshmallows as a Christmas gift for neighbors this year and they were quite a hit. I'm not much of a marshmallow eater myself, but these impressed me. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/homemade-marshmallows-recipe/index.html In answer to your question, they are quite soft and melt very quickly if you put them in hot cocoa but I assume that leaving them uncovered would stiffen them a bit. I highly recommend leaving them in the pan to set overnight rather than the minimum 4 hours, as this will give them a chance to stiffen a bit, which makes them MUCH easier to cut. They're super easy so I'm sure you'll have excellent luck making them.
