Today we are going to discuss a very important topic. Marshmallows. There is such a long and interesting history to this humble food. Did you know that marshmallows were originally made from the marshmallow plant?
Yes, there is a real plant called marshmallow, its official name is Althaea officinalis. It was used in the treatment of sore throats.
Today’s modern confection is used in many forms. Only Kosher Candy sells Kosher Marshmallows which are unique in the fact that they are manufactured using kosher fish gelatin. There are no animal derivatives which is a boon for those consumers who are particular about eating meat products.
People of all ages love marshmallows for the soft gooey sweetness. As a mom, marshmallows are super practical as a non sticky treat that won’t get the kids’ hands all sticky like traditional candies do.
With summer season upon us, what’s a family bbq like without marshmallows on a stick melted into s’mores. Bonfires are not complete without roasting marshmallows, and Only Kosher Candy has the super jumbo marshmallows (click here) which are double the size of the standard marshmallows for an extra dose of marshmallow heaven!
They also come in the fruity flavors which are so pretty to use to decorate cakes or cupcakes (click here). For my kindergarten daughter’s end of year party I sent in these pretty marshmallow cupcakes which stole the show. They are so simple to make and look so amazing. Frost your cupcakes with any color frosting. Cut a fruity marshmallow into 3 slices using a pair of kitchen shears. The cutting action will pinch the top and bottom of the slice into a petal shape. Place a few petals ontop of the frosting to make a pretty flower design.
