Fluffy homemade marshmallows dipped in chocolate and crushed peppermint; these heavenly and festive marshmallows are perfect for gifting and devouring this holiday season.
Goodness, I’m excited about today’s recipe. Let me start by saying that if you have never experienced the bliss that is a fluffy homemade marshmallow, it is time to hop on that sweet treat bandwagon. (Remember these big and fluffy raspberry marshmallows?) Truly, homemade marshmallows are SO much better than store-bought and making homemade marshmallows is the coolest thing ever. There’s something totally magical about watching sugar whip up into marshmallow fluff, and then just a few hours later, the marshmallow sets into this giant squishy pillow. You sort of feel like a mad scientist in the kitchen and the end result is too much fun.
Dipping these fluffy homemade marshmallows in chocolate and crushed peppermint is just the icing on the cake … errr, marshmallow.
