Marshmallows are a fluffy, light confection usually made from a boiled sugar syrup whipped with gelatin and egg whites. If you've never made homemade marshmallows, you are in for a treat. Freshly made marshmallows are soft, pillowy, and subtly fragrant, while most store-bought marshmallows are more like chewy cardboard. Best of all, you can customize your marshmallows in a variety of shapes, sizes, colors, and flavors. These marshmallow recipes will make you a believer--and if you are more interested in quick-and-easy candy, there are recipes using purchased marshmallows as well. Be sure to check out the step-by-step photo tutorial showing how to make marshmallows.
