Fluffy Marshmallows Thanks to Alton Brown {Homemade}


After having some fresh marshmallows in France and New Orleans this year, I just knew that I had to make them. I am not normally a marshmallow person, but the fresh ones are just so light and airy. My daughter and I used a recipe by Alton Brown for our first {and successful} attempt. I thought maybe I was a little ambitious by including my daughter on this project. However, she was eager to help and did quite a good job. She even was pretty good at not sneaking a lick until we were cleaning up. I found Alton's recipe to be pretty easy to follow. If you follow the steps, you will not end up with a sticky mess. Rather, you will end up with delightful, sugary puffs! If you are looking for a marshmallow recipe, Alton Brown's recipe is great. We plan on making some chocolate covered marshmallows for the holidays, so I will let you know how that goes!
