Who doesn’t love marshmallows…?The fragrance of the festive season taking over with the
aroma of fruit cakes,sweets,and many more to brighten up the Christmassy spirit,I was
inspired to make marshmallows,and that too these mint marshmallows are really addictive
and awesome.Very easy to make but a little messy ,but it’s worth all the mess.Good for
gifting,and can be made into different colours and flavours.I have eaten many flavours but I
think mint….tops it all.I used liquid glucose instead of corn syrup and,believe me it was really
So do give a try …and send in your comments.
