Homemade marshmallows made for excellent Christmas gifts in December, and they’re also great for the upcoming holiday! If you like to show your affection through sweets and baking, then this is a pretty awesome recipe.

The process was so simple, and they came out great–though we had a lot of technical difficulties. One: we had no candy or meat thermometer. This didn’t turn out to be be much a problem. BUT, two: the egg beater which we used to beat the marshmallows died about 2 minutes into whipping (from overheating we may assume). Hand-mixing marshmallow goo is quite a tiring task, folks. However, it turned out just fine in the end.
