Hello my dear readers,

It is the Sunday, March 11th of 2018.

And are you missing that one hour?

You know the one that was stolen by Daylight saving.

Son of … the changing life.

In order to easier adjust to this day I am going to make light, very sweet pillows that will lighten your mood

and will help your delicate circadian clocks.

MARSHMALLOWS

For this recipe to be success you need to be organized and you need to do the following steps before you start making the recipe.

IMPORTANT

1.Find a candy thermometer

You will need a candy thermometer in order to make marshmallows.

If you don’t have one check the stores like Walmart, Winners, The Bay or

go to our safe place called AMAZON.

www.amazon.com 

2.Prepare pan

Prepare 8×8 pan.

Use parchment paper to line.

Be sure that it comes up and over the side of 8×8 pan.

This is important because you will be able to easily “lift” marshmallows out of the pan.

Lightly grease the parchment paper with oil.

3. Sugar/cornstarch mixture

In a small bowl mix 3/4 cup icing sugar and 3/4 cup cornstarch. Set aside.

Now you are ready for baking show.

Turn the marshmallows out onto the cutting board and dust with more icing sugar/cornstarch mixture.

Cut into squares or desired shapes.

Important:

Slip the knife into cold water before cutting the marshmallows.

Repeat as many times as you need it.

Eat and enjoy.

If you want fancier marshmallows, (and I know, you do) you can follow the options below.

White Chocolate Sauce/Glaze

You will need to melt 1 cup white chocolate using a double boiler method.

Once the white chocolate is melted add 1 TBSP oil. Mix well.

The white chocolate and oil mixture needs to be smooth and shine.

Option 1 – Oreo option

Using a food processor ground 15 Oreos.

Dip each marshmallow into white chocolate mixture then into oreo crumbs.

Place the coated marshmallows into baking pan or tray to set.
