Travesty mallow

Travesty mallow!

For our apartment-warming a couple of months back, I decided to make a big batch of marshmallows that I could just set out for people to help themselves to.  It worked out well in the end, because I just made them all the night before and didn’t have to worry about clearing fridge space or anything.  I just sat them out on the table and cut them up before the party.

To make them special, I did three different flavours: chocolate swirl, rhubarb (sooooooooo delicious), and mint, because I have a mint plant in a pot on a shelf.   Fresh mint will be even better than mint extract! I thought to myself. But I have to tell you, internet, it was not better. Not even a little bit.  The stiff block of icky green mallow I flipped out of its container the next day was indeed a travesty upon its kind.  In short: it doesn’t go in your mouth.  My husband was fascinated it by the texture though, and before we threw it out he had to take a big bite out of it.  Why?

“Because when else am I going to be able to take a bite out of a GIANT BLOCK OF MARSHMALLOW?”
