The Perfect Marshmallow…

Are you without a fireplace or outdoor fire equipment? Do you suffer from Marshmallow-envy of people who do have these things? You are in luck, I have a funny new “Single girl” behavior that I have started with one of my oldest, dearest friends. She has taught me how to roast a large marshmallow to perfection, in the confines of your very own home. What we do, is we get out the metal marshmallow holders you would take camping with you. We remove the wrought iron burner top from the gas range and we start the burner. Loading up our metal swords of joy with the magical puffs of sugar and we then begin to roast them over the open gas burner. Now this is what I never knew how to do before recently and it is what makes the perfect marshmallow experience. Try to never let the sweet puff of bliss catch on fire and if you do (which you will) blow out the flames as soon as possible. Once you have a golden bronze look around most of your marshmallow, gently pull the outer layer off of the end of it. Then you just pop that sucker in your mouth and it is bound to be the most delectable bite. A perfect combination of that crusty outer sugar shell that we all love so much and just enough of the melted mellow to warm your tongue. Once you have savored your bite and maybe even before, you can restart the heating process with whats left of your marshmallow. I can usually “burn and pull” one marshmallow about 4 or 5 times, if I am doing it right. I love this technique for so many reasons, it is tastier, you eat less because it takes longer to eat just one. But, the best reason of all; you don’t need to be camping or have a fire-place.
It’s just another day in LoLa-Land,

    My recipe for gourmet s’mores:
    stale Easter Peeps
    good slab of chocolate
    cinnamon graham crackers

    Toast that Peep until the sugar caramelizes and squish it between two cinnamon grahams and a square of chocolate. Mmmmmm! Believe it or not, it goes great with a glass of chilled chablis…

    I love eating marshmallows that way! Alas, we have an electric stove, and no fire pit or fireplace! We have to dream about these marshmallows all year until we get to go camping or visit someone with a fire pit!
