There was a lot of yelling in my kitchen the night my roommates and I decided to go all out and make homemade marshmallows and graham crackers.
It all started out so innocently, with a perfectly sugared pan...
With the marshmallow mixture sufficiently taking on a life of it's own, we decided it probably didn't need any more encouragement. We wrestled it into the pan (again more yelling), attempted to shape it into something pleasing to the eye, and put it in the fridge. If you head on over to check out Smitten Kitchen's experience with this recipe, you'll see her's looks a lot different than our's at this point.
When it came out of the fridge, there was more yelling, but this time it was exciting yelling. Again with the, we're-really-excited-because-it-looks-like-what-it's-supposed-to-look-like.
These marshmallows were so awesome, they tasted SO much better than regular marshmallows. They were sweeter and had a much better texture... which led to more yelling.
For some reason these mallows went from solid to gooey, hot napalm in like .02 seconds. You're like, grilling, grilling, grilling, OH GOD, why is it sliding off my skewer!? Quick, quick, get me a S'more set up! And it's really hard for people to take you seriously when you have marshmallow goo all over your face and don't know it.
Mmmm... so good.
