I am a marshmallow fan. My favorite way to have them is in hot chocolate, by the campfire. Following closely behind – toasted (again by the campfire). The first time I had homemade marshmallows, I was converted. There’s just something about a homemade marshmallow – something, yes, something (as you can read, I can’t really describe that something). So, I’ve always wanted to make them but thought they were very difficult since they involved something called a candy thermometer. I decided to take action one day at Canadian Tire when I saw a candy thermometer for $6.99. This was my first time using a candy thermometer so it was kinda tricky.
