We made marshmallows the other day....unfortunately they didn't turn out very good. Although we don't have a candy thermometer, I thought we'd give the recipe a try, but apparently the mixture didn't get hot enough. My mother in law and I have made these before and they turned out excellent, so this try was a sore disappointment. Regardless, the kids still had a blast. I don't ever let the kids lick spoons or bowls when we bake, but since this recipe doesn't call for raw eggs, I let them have at it. At one point Andrew had his whole head in the bowl. yikes! I had no choice but to give them a bath afterward.
