SMORES with Homemade Marshmallows

i’m back…with that promised recipe!

my friend Amy B brought these to a get together a long time ago, and i instantly fell in love with the cuteness and taste! i should’ve called her for tips, cause her’s look way cooler and much more professional! maybe she’ll give me some lessons on pastry making/baking someday??!!

anyway…i had made homemade marshmallows a few times, but loved the idea of turning them into these fun smores creations. so i’ll show you the how-to…

so to start with, you have to make some homemade marshmallows. do not be intimidated. if you have an electric mixer and a candy thermometer, its easy as pie!!

i’ve included the recipe card for the Marshmallows at the bottom of the post below. here’s the step by step:

cook the following ingredients over medium heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved.
increase heat, and…
slowly pour syrup mixture into mixing bowl, combining with gelatin over low speed. then:

i made these for Valentine’s Day, hence the pink color!
Let mixture sit out in dish overnight to dry out.

once all your marshmallows are cut:

melt some chocolate. i use Almond Bark for anything that i have to dip or coat in chocolate…its very easy and foolproof:

to enjoy them at their prime, eat your smores as soon as the chocolate has hardened. the graham crackers get soft pretty quickly, even when in an airtight container. although that didn’t stop us from polishing them all off a few days later, soggy graham crackers and all!
let me know how your’s turn out and if any of you know how to prevent the graham crackers from getting soft!
