making marshmallows …

The other night . . .

I asked my 9 year old daughter Hattie to pick a recipe or two

from an old Martha Stewart Holiday issue I had sitting on the counter . . .

I thought it would be fun to make some holiday goodies together!

Hattie sat at the table a long time!!

She then came back with this huge list – and I mean HUGE . . .

starting with these very cool marshmallow snowflakes!

Hmmm – I thought . . .

I have never made marshmallows before . . .

Let’s just say it was an absolute BLAST . . .

from watching the mixture become this white . . . thick . . . sticky foam-like substance . . .

to spreading it in a pan and sprinkling them with powdered sugar . . . just like snow . . .

and then cutting them up into fun holiday shapes . . .

The stars were our favorite!!

 Yes – I truly felt like a kid again . . . laughing and smiling the whole time . . .

playing – like a child!!

I am not really sure who had more fun – Hattie or myself!

I just know that I can’t wait to try them in some hot cocoa!!

Are you dreaming of a White Christmas?  I know I am!!

And – if the snow doesn’t come . . .

you will find me making more of these – perhaps in the shape of a snowman! 🙂

Happy Holidays everyone! Peace and Blessings to all of you!!

The Marshmallow Snowflake Recipe

can be found here on the Martha Stewart website!!

Just add the confectioner’s sugar for dusting . . .

and pretend it is snowing!!
