How to Roast a Marshmallow

26 May

Believe it or not, there is a right and a wrong way to roast a marshmallow.

This is the wrong way…

This is just burnt sugar.  Who wants that?

Roasting a marshmallow takes patience.  My children have learned patience through roasting the perfect marshmallow (of course the reward for their patience is sugar!).

Load up your Hot Dog roaster

Hover your marshmallows high above the hot coals, NOT directly in the flame

Rotate, Rotate, Rotate

When the marshmallow is golden brown in some spots and just about to fall off the roaster, it is ready.

I promise you, if you can wait for the marshmallow to look like this, all of the work is worth it.  The centers are liquid marshmallow.  I love a marshmallow roasted like this so much that I don’t even bother with the chocolate bar and graham cracker!
