Last year I went to the Austin Farmers Market when we were in the area visiting family. It was around Thanksgiving and the air was cool. I remember getting a cup of hot cocoa with a homemade salted caramel marshmallow in it. I had my choice of marshmallows—they were included at this booth—and I was immediately taken. Oh my! The flavor and texture of these homemade marshmallows was unlike any store-bought version I had ever tried. Light, fluffy, squishy and full of flavor. Yummy!
Ever since then I’ve wanted to try and make my own version. It only took me almost a year to give it a try! Over the summer, I came across the fun Marshmallow Madness book that provided extra inspiration and made it look so easy (it really, is). So with the combination of these two things, I thought these Homemade Salted Caramel Marshmallows would be a perfect addition to the 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats.
Let me tell you, these are really quite easy to make and I bet once you try them, you’ll not want to accept anything less. The little bit of caramel swirled in tastes good on its own but is excellent in the hot cocoa too. Either way, I hope you’ll give them a try. They would also make great gifts! Maybe include some hot cocoa mix? A great combo if you ask me!
Here’s the recipe:
