    I used this recipe after trying others (one from Martha Stewart, even!) and the Smitten Kitchen one worked the BEST! However, I used the full amount of vanilla, and they tasted too vanilla-y…you may want to drop that amount a bit. Just a suggestion!

    This is one of those things I've always wanted to try in my head even though it seems that the reality would be much more difficult than I want to tackle just before Christmas. So I picked some up at Whole Foods instead. :-)
    Can't wait to see how yours turn out!

    I've used the Martha Stewart recipe a few times, and the result was tasty. It was, however, a bit of a pain.

    So easy with the Smitten Kitchen recipe! I had never made them before and followed the directions with much success. The best part is cutting them into squares- you feel so proud!

    i made these awhile back. there was the cutest article in gourmet (i believe) about the writer getting homemade marshmallows from her boyfriend which only sealed the deal on marriage forever. homemade marshmallows are pretty darn good.

    I love Smitten Kitchen! Those photos are so beautiful and make we want to try just about everything she does. Let us know how the marshmellows come out. I recently tried a cake from the site and it was a hit (http://www.hitherandthither.net/2009/11/thanksgiving-for-two.html). Maybe these are next…

    Good luck!

    My mum always made us homemade marshies (as we called them) when we were kids. I could inhale a whole batch within a few days. She's coat them in toasted coconut to stop sticky fingers.
    Merry Christmas!

    i actually used the one design sponge posted two years. it's just so simple.

    i just made 200 bags and sold them at a local christas bazaar. once you get the hang of it, super easy. but she's right on smitten kitchen: don't try to scrape the bowl or it will get messy. i used a ton of vegetable oil on my pan and found that a pizza cutter is easiest. have fun and good luck!

    i just made these (right before your post)! i'm giving my friends homemade marshmallows and starbucks gift cards for christmas. i added cocoa powder to make them chocolate flavored. i used scissors to cut into cubes, which worked well.

    Do NOT use a hand mixer to make this! I tried last year, and the mashmallow got fluffy so fast, it started to "climb" the mixer's feet and next thing I knew *poof*, sparks flew, my mixer blew up, and my mashmallows smelled like electrical fire. They went in the trash. :-(

    I did use the the Martha Stewart recipe once. They worked just fine. I also cut them out with a cookie cutter into small snowflakes. The were great gifts.

    We just posted about peppermint marshmallows from the Baked cookbook. They're delicious. The peppermint ones are wonderful in hot chocolate.
