From the Inside Flap
It’s no secret that people love marshmallows. We eat them in ice cream, cookies, fudge, candy bars, and s’mores. We enjoy them out of hand, roast them over campfires, use them to decorate birthday cakes, and add them to hot chocolate. Now you can make your own marshmallows at home! Making these gourmet creations is much simpler than you might think. Just follow the step-by-step instructions in this book and soon you’ll be replacing the bagged marshmallows you buy at the grocery store with delectable fresh marshmallows. You can make vanilla flavored marshmallows, but why stick with that? Widen your repertoire to include a multitude of flavors such as strawberry, chocolate chip, lemon, caramel, pumpkin, key lime, amaretto, apple spice, cinnamon mocha, and many more! And instead of that marshmallow fluff you buy in the jar, now you can have homemade fluffs including vanilla, blackberry, minted, espresso, frozen chocolate, and many others. Marshmallows: Homemade Gourmet Treats also includes fabulous recipes for using your marshmallows and fluff, such as Poached Pears with Dessert Wine Fluff and Chocolate Cherry Cake Towers. Wow your neighbors and friends and enjoy all the fun of creating your very own homemade gourmet treats. Featuring over 100 tantalizing recipes, Marshmallows has helpful sections on ingredients, equipment, tips and techniques, a history of marshmallows, and much more.
