Red Stick Spice store owner Anne Milneck served many years as her daughter’s Girl Scout leader. Attrition in Girl Scouts increases as girls get older, but this troop stayed in tact well into their pre-teen years. Anne credited her stellar leadership for the troop’s longevity, but her co-leader quickly corrected her. “It’s not you. It’s the marshmallows.”
These homemade marshmallows were brought to every campout and backyard campfire during those years. There are girls who were known for eating 10 in a sitting. They are light, fluffy and perfect for roasting. They melt well on a cup of hot cocoa and make an excellent holiday gift. Just tie up a box with some milk chocolate bars and grahams.
Could our homemade marshmallows get any better? Yes, indeed! Pair them with our Aztec Cocoa. Yum!
