The Letter “M” – what will it be?

Ordinary Lives. From a 2 z 4 u & me

Is it Mystery, Marriage, Money, Magic or Marshmallows?

Well today I decided to have FUN – so it’s going to be Marshmallows!!!!

What are Marshmallows – besides yuMMy? According to Alton Brown they contain gelatin, water, sugar, corn syrup, salt, vanilla extract, confectioner’s sugar, and cornstarch – sometimes with added coloring. According to Wikipedia (and we know that is always a reliable source – LOL) marshmallows were probably a medicinal substance made from the root of …you guessed it…the Marshmallow plant. It was used to treat sore throats. The original Marshmallow – used as a candy – dates back to ancient Egypt. 🙂

Okay, enough history. What can be done with a Marshmallow? 😎 Here are a few of our favorites (disclaimer: I do not support, nor did I completely check out all of these pages):

Now there are so many other things that could be done with Marshmallows that just wouldn’t fit on this blog, but you get the idea.

Personally, I like to eat Marshmallows plain, straight from the bag. How about you? How does your family like their Marshmallows?

  1. Yumz! Marshmallows! I’m with you–straight from the bag, but only 2 or 3 minis at a time, otherwise, it’s it Krispie Treats, but with families like ours a double batch (according to the box ROFL) is a single serving. hmmm. May have to make some this week. After all, it’s still summer, right? 😉

  2. Before I became diabetic, marshmallows were my favorite dippers for chocolate fountains! And I loved the way they melted across the bottom to make a white topper for my hot chocolate. Mmmmmmm. I wonder if they make sugar free ones?

  3. Had to stop back by and tell you…I awarded you the Liebster Award today. Stop by and check it out – I’ve really enjoyed your blog, name changes and all:)

  4. I’m strange in that I don’t really like marshmallows straight from the bag, but I like them every other way. I’ll even just put some chocolate chips and marshmallows in the microwave until they are all gooey and crunchy.
