I actually don't think I like marshmallows. I mean, Lucky Charms are pretty good, and I don't mind a s'more once a year, but I say keep them away from my hot chocolate.
But, admittedly, I've never had real marshmallow. A light and fluffy, just-sweet-enough tasty treat whipped up at home. And looking at this recipe, I'm pretty sure I could be convinced otherwise. "The method is surprisingly easy, but you do need an electric mixer. They're basically a combination of sugar, corn syrup, and gelatin. This mixture is whipped until tripled in volume, resulting in a light fluffy mess of marshmallow cream. It's so pillowy and delicious, it's hard not to lick the bowl. Start a day ahead: the finished marshmallows need a night to set."
