Who knew it was National S'mores Day?! Not me, until I saw someone else post about it. I was working on a post about s'mores, so today seems like a great day to post it up for my readers.
A while back, I decided to have a go at making my own homemade marshmallows. At the store, I can only get marshmallows that have food coloring and high fructose corn syrup in them. I search around online, and found an several recipes worth trying. I decided to go with the Alton Brown marshmallow recipe, since I have had good experiences with his recipes before. Some day, I think I'll try making my own sugar syrup, instead of using corn syrup.
So, I made the marshmallows a while back. And why do I need marshmallows? Because I love s'mores. And I have a microwave, which means I can have that gooey, chocolate and graham cracker sandwich any time I want. Yeah. I've post about this before, but it never hurts repeating.
Elizabeth has been wanting to try one. She thought she would like it, and I think she did, but ultimately the messiness of very sweetness of it were a bit much.
So she let me finish hers. :)
So now, on National S'mores Day, you know you can A) make your own marshmallows and B) make s'mores even with out a fire.
