What is it about St Patrick’s Day and green food / drink? Whatever the reason, I was feeling festive and went along with the trend making a green variation of the homemade marshmallows I did a couple weeks ago.
These were just as a easy as the first version, only instead of the vanilla I added 3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract and about 15 drops of green food coloring.
After chilling, cut them up and drizzle or dip melted chocolate over them. I actually dipped rather than drizzled most of the batch, they just didn’t photograph as well. I guess I need to work on my dipping skills!
One word of advice, if you choose to drizzle, make sure to break apart all the marshmallows before drizzling. Breaking the mallows apart post drizzle after the chocolate has hardened results in awkward chocolate appendages sticking out of some marshmallows and others left chocolate-less.
I hope these marshmallows are as big of a hit as the last batch! I don’t think this is the last you’ll see of these marshmallows either. I have more mallow ideas brewing!
What are some of your green food favorites?
