Enjoying hot chocolate with homemade marshmallows (recipe by Alton Brown) during Icepocalypse '11.
Homemade marshmallows. The good news: they taste just like regular marshmallows! The bad news: they taste just like regular marshmallows! And when you subject yourself to that level of stickiness, and a temperamental candy thermometer, and the brutal realization that marshmallows are basically gelatin plus 5 different kinds of sugar, you kind of want them to taste better than regular marshmallows. Still, it was fun to try them once!
