Well, now you won't be satisfied with the stuff from the supermarket!
Maida Heatter, in her "Book of Great Cookies," has a recipe for marshmallows that I used to make often for my dad, whose all-time favorite candy was bittersweet chocolate coated marshmallows.
Those marshmallows are heavenly!
Last month when I was staying at this 2-star chateau in Reims (the restaurant is also 2-Star (www.assiettechampenoise.com
) the chef served a different flavored marshmallow every evening as part of the dessert degustation. The big favorites were the hazelnut and the coconut, but all were lovely. The marshmallow was served in a log-type chunk with a pair of scissors, so you could cut off as much or as little as you liked.
[He also served house-made cotton candy, house-made suckers, and the best, most upscale version of a Reese's cup any of us had ever had!]
