Marshmallow: a soft and chewy cloud

Eating marshmallows alone is one of life's greatest pleasures. Marshmallows are truly a delightful snack if you are looking for something sweet and light. They have been around for quite some time, yet the history is unclear about their origins. It is believed that marshmallows have originated from America where they have become a popular snack for decades, however there is no conclusive proof that this was the first country where they were used as an ingredient in the creation of sweets.
Kids love marshmallows. Who wouldn't? They're soft, cuddly and a little sweet. Together with their rich color, which are present in all the marshmallow candies – not just jumbo ones – the children of the world can easily get hooked to these yummy sweet creams.

Marshmallows are very versatile. They can be eaten on their own or threaded onto skewers and cooked over the fire, or even added to a cup of hot chocolate, ice cream, waffles, to decorate cakes, cupcakes and more.If you have never seen a marshmallow fondant sugar paste, I highly recommend you give it a try.
I love marshmallows decorated with chocolate and sprinkles! They are delicious and fun to make.

You can use colorful chocolate ( colored with alimentar colors) and
marshmallows can be prepared in so many ways! All it takes is a little imagination. They are ideal for birthdays, family dinners and snacks (like the S'mores......i love it).
Did you know? You can make your own colored chocolate and dip marshmallows in it, for a spectacular result! Then you only need to decorate them with little bows, sprinkles, mini ice cream, mermaid tail and more, depending on the theme you have chosen. The good thing is that this won't cost you much money. Why not try it out? Enjoy!!!
