A marshmallow is a candy, first commercially manufactured during the late 19th century. Chocolate covered marshmallows are marsh-mallows coated in chocolate.(!)
Traditionally, marshmallows were a combination of marshmallow root, whipped egg whites, vanilla extract, and sugar.
However, as marshmallow root became more difficult to find, it was often replaced by gelatin.
A finished marshmallow is usually shaped and cut and may be rolled in powdered sugar or cornstarch to give the exterior a dry, non-sticky texture.
Some popular American desserts and activities include marshmallows and chocolate:
~ Pinwheels and Mallomars are well-known cookies.
~ Rocky Road fudge, Rocky Road ice cream, and hot cocoa just wouldn't be the same without those miniatures.
~ And how could camping trips be complete without roasting S’mores?
