Marshmallow Failure: You Can't Win 'Em All!

The finished product before being cut into squares, and retitled Ugly Marshmallows

This is my first ever attempt at making marshmallows. It didn't work out according to plan. It was supposed to be easy. They were supposed to be beautiful and impressive. I was supposed to be triumphant. But no. It was an ugly, sticky mess and now that I'm done pouting, I'm willing to share the photos with you.


I'd like to be able to say it was 4am when I made these and I was too tired to read the instructions carefully, but honestly, I have no idea where I went wrong and it wasn't 4am. Baking mishaps happen to everyone and this is my new personal favorite. The blob in the photo at the top makes me giggle to no end! I will say, though, that the final product does taste very much like a marshmallow. You just need to be blindfolded from the hideous sight while nibbling. Better luck next time!

I think it's time to try it again. Maybe make marshmallows to add to your favorite ice cream mixture...

Marni in December 2009 Bon Appetit had a marshmallow recipe that Karen and I made that was very easy. If you feel like trying again after Passover, definitely check out their website. If we can do it...you defenitely can! No doubt.
