Marshmallows are a classic confection for filling hot chocolate or toasting over an open fire, but did you know it’s relatively easy to prepare at home? This Grandmothers marshmallows recipe combines a hot syrup with egg whites until very thick and sticky. This process is very similar to the Swiss meringue method, where the egg whites are beaten continuously with a steady stream of hot sugar syrup being poured in until the mixture becomes very thick and glossy. This easy marshmallow recipe will make you a marshmallow aficionado because they are a versatile base for any flavorings. Consider folding some chocolate chips and crushed graham crackers into the marshmallow mixture for a smores version or add any chopped nuts or dried fruit. Marshmallows do take a little bit of time to set, but each batch makes several that will store in an airtight container for weeks. These confections can be added to any recipes using marshmallows, whether it be pressed between graham crackers for classic campfire smores or added to rich cups of homemade hot chocolate.
