Homemade Marshmallows

Olivia got up early to finish making the homemade marshmallows that we started making on February 13th.

She rolled each marshmallow in sprinkles - red, purple, white, and pink. I rolled some in powdered sugar.

It was an interesting process making homemade marshmallows. It takes a while to make them (it was a 2-day process for Olivia and me), but the end result was worth it.

The homemade marshmallows have a different texture than the packaged ones, and do not melt when you put them in hot chocolate.

I'm curious to see what they would taste like toasted over a fire and used in smores.

Here's another picture from the marshmallow-making experience:
