Where Do Real Marshmallows Come From?
The history of marshmallows is fascinating! The source of making delicious and real marshmallows is the sap from the Mallow Plant that loves wet and marshy environment. The sweet secret of the Mallow Plant was known to ancient Egyptians who prepared candied goodies mixed with nuts and honey for the their Gods and Pharaohs.
Marshmallow delicacy took a new shape and form when the French chefs created a mixture that combined the recipe from the Egyptians and the added egg whites and sugar ingredients.
These days, we incorporate marshmallows of many colors and shapes into many desserts. Use the well-known marshmallows you can buy in any stores for decor and festive occasions, and for picnics and scout trips.
For this particular chocolate covered marshmallows, we took large marshmallows and turned them into a fun dessert for St. Patrick’s Day celebration. This recipe is easy to make and is not time-consuming.
