Check out Stephanie's post on The Western Pleasure Horse 101 (As we requested!) She did a AWESOME job! Thanks Stephanie!
(sorry for the ** (for some reason this stupid thing wont hold my spaces)
I am feeling a little under the weather... literally and figuratively. I caught the nasty cold that has been making its rounds and have had quite enough of this freakin' snow!
So today I decided to make some goodies to make my Mom (who also has a cold) and I feel a little better.... something that is sweet, white, light and fluffy….
Now…. there is a BIG difference between homemade and your common store bought Marshmallows. BIG, HUGE, MONUMENTOUS! Ok...maybe not that much but there really is no comparison....
My mother bought some handmade coconut marshmallows from a specialty market back in November that were delicious. We wondered then if we could recreate them at home (as they were ridiculously expensive!)
So, I decided to give it a shot and make some for Christmas (along with homemade Snowballs (coconut covered chocolate mint balls) for my Mom. They were, if I don’t say so myself, a real hit (far more than my Carrot pudding!) and just as good as the "specialty" ones.
So here it is.... a photo recipe of how to make them.
