These homemade bourbon marshmallows - made without corn syrup and flavored with whiskey - are just as fun to make as they are to eat!
I'll apologize in advance. I'm about to geek out on you.
This was my first time making marshmallows at home, and it reminded me why I love experimenting in the kitchen.
Baking is a science, but it can be easy to forget that when you're focused on the delicious outcome. With marshmallows, it's all about the process, and it's fascinating to watch the gelatin react when water is added and to see the texture change as air is added to the mixture. Making these marshmallows reminded me of being a kid in the kitchen, eager to help and to see what I could create. These would be a blast to make with kids, and you can easily swap out the bourbon for an equal amount of vanilla extract to make classic vanilla marshmallows.
Oh, and be sure to stop back on Sunday, because we'll be using these bourbon marshmallows to make another tasty treat!Print
