The Art of Roasting Marshmallows

 

So immediately following the multiple graduation parties, my mom and the three little girls and I  hopped in the car and headed for Iowa.  We had a wonderful time on the farm eating pork burgers, roasting marshmallows, sifting through family heirlooms and just enjoying being at home. 

I am pretty sure that marshmallow roasting is the very best part of summer.  To make it even better, my mom had this great package of marshmallows.

Marshmallows!

 

And here is what they look like toasted

And boy did they ever hit the spot. 

My roasting technique  consists of getting the marshmallow  nice and golden brown  and then pulling off that toasted outer layer and eating it while toasting the remaining insides of the marshmallow.  And it is even better with a GIANT marshmallow!

We did turn some of them into smores and this is what happened.

 

What a great start to summer.

Love it! My perfect marshmellow is sizzlin' dark & very gooey inside. Best ever for smores!
