Making Homemade Marshmallows is my dream, but i kind of stayed away from it because i thought it is kind of complicated and it calls for corn syrup and sugar thermometer..But recently i stumbled upon a recipe which catched my eye.Guess what immediately i tried it and it turned out great…
Eventhough i am satisfied with the results, i did few mistakes in making them, I have listed them in my notes section so you can make perfect batch of it..These marshmallows was spongy, fluffy and like a perfect marshmallow..
