Happy National Toasted Marshmallow Day!
As the summer comes close to an end, it’s time to enjoy the warm summer nights that you have left!
Gather together some of your family and friends, some wood, a bag of marshmallows, and go find some long sticks in your back yard for an evening bonfire because today is National Toasted Marshmallow Day!!
It’s sometimes hard trying to make that perfect marshmallow. We’ve all had a marshmallow get caught on fire at least once! Some people do love their marshmallows burnt to a crisp, but others crave that golden, gooey marshmallow to make a perfect S’more.
Here are some great marshmallow roasting techniques for you and your guests to use when toasting your perfect marshmallow!
- The “constant rotation” method: Keep their marshmallow rotating constantly, like on a rotisserie, so that every side gets the same amount of heat and the same amount of crisp.
- The “hold and rotate” method: Hold the marshmallow steady over the coals until one bit is perfectly brown and toasty. Then rotate the marshmallow a quarter turn and begin roasting the next bit. Either way, your goal is a marshmallow that is golden brown and just slightly crispy, all the way around.
- The “burn it” method: Stick your marshmallow right into the flames and let it burn. Then, you can either peel off the outer burnt part, and eat the gooey goodness that’s inside or just eat the entire charred mess of a marshmallow!
*Secret tip: If you want a really decadent treat, put a caramel candy (or any other preference of candy) on the stick above your marshmallow. When both the marshmallow and the candy are soft, slide the marshmallow up so that it covers the candy. Mind. Blown.
Now call up your friends and family, run to the store for some marshmallows and get ready for an awesome night spent around bonfire with some delicious toasted marshmallows and great company. Happy National Toasted Marshmallow Day!
