Cinnamon Sugar Marshmallows
I have always wondered what a homemade marshmallow tastes like. What the difference is between those nasty, sticky blobs that come in bags at the store, and these gigantic lovely cubes. So when I saw Have It Sweet Confections on the Etsy front page, and their marshmallow sampler, I ordered it to see for myself. I must proclaim, I am completely smitten.
The sampler came with Heavenly Vanilla, Double Cocoa Swirl, Lemon Meringue Pie, and Sugar Cookie marshmallows. The texture is more dense than store-bought marshmallows. They are sweet, as they should be, but have more flavor than the others. And the shape is so darn cute.
The thing that struck me first was how prettily they were wrapped and packed. They came in the prettiest gold wax paper bags, with 4 marshmallow to a bag. I though how lovely and thoughtful they would be as favors for guests at a wedding. Maybe tied with a custom colored ribbon to match.
