Marshmallows are one of those things that are in everyone's 'outwardly-loves-but-secretly-thinks-it-tastes-like-plastic' list. Well, for me it is anyways... It was also on my 'I-have-no-idea-what-its-made-of-because-I've-only-bought-it-premade-in-the-supermarket' list. Did you know a marshmallow is a plant traditionally used as an ingredient in the Marshmallow treat? Modern day marshmallow recipes have nothing of the sort. But the Gods of Good Eating are kind because marshmallows are incredibly easy to make, 10-fold tastier than store bought, and 100% customizable.
