End of November Post


I thought I’d end this month by discussing something I made at the end of last month – Marshmallow Ghouls for Halloween! I had, as usual, pretty elaborate plans for Halloween – I wanted to make macaroon candy corn, decorated sugar cookies, and these little ghosts. But as I had only a mere 4 days before Halloween (this also had to include my costume-making time), I had to pick one recipe to try out. Homemade marshmallows, other than being delicious, have major wow-factor and I thought I’d test out piping them out in different shapes.

I think I discussed in previous post on the ease of making your own ‘mallows – really, it’s easy! You just need a heavy and reliable saucepan and a stand mixer. You could use a hand mixer, but it would take a long time. A long, long time. The trick for piping and shaping marshmallows is to whip up the syrup so that it’s really thick and strands of marshmallow are whipping around the bowl – that’s when you know it’s ready.

They look a little melty, and I did the chocolate super-fast, but otherwise, not bad, right?
