As the season approaches I am reminded of how much I love love love making marshmallows.
A dear friend the other day asked me for my recipe...and I thought since I was making some next weekend, I would share the recipe with all of you too....  This is the same recipe our family has been making for decades..still a favourite, still a treat...

This is also part of my homework at school, designing our own recipe cards...I love having a list of ingredients on my right, and enough room at the top to add, love this, fam favourite, and dates... You know something personal....I did not add anything here, cause this will be yours...but these are fantastic, you will be sooooo surprised at how easy they are to make...and delicious, well let's not even go there....make them first...I add coconut, dip them into chocolate, caramel...wellllll and pssst I don't even like sugar...but these are a delightful treat...

  1. Thank you for the yummy recipe! I have always wanted to try to make marshmallows, every Christmas it's on my list but I never get around to making them. Maybe this year is the year!

  2. Samm I'm in love with your recipe cards....gorgeous! blessings, marlene

  3. Oh, this is something I've made with my grandkids and since they will be here this week, I had bought all the ingredients so that we could make them for our hot chocolate on Thanksgiving night or when decorating the Christmas tree! How timely! Thank you for the beautiful recipe card. I'll print it out so they have a copy to take home!

  4. So many cool things going on....it's like Christmas has already begun! Thank you for the recipe card. It looks like something fun to make with my Monkey Boys. Oooo, and I love that little froggy purse. :O)

  5. I have all the ingredients so we can make the marshmellows over Thanksgiving when my granddaughter comes down...but when I read the recipe it did not say what the 1 1/4 light corn syrup should be, is that 1 1/4 cups of light corn syrup..Can't wait to try this...and love the little froggy purse................

    Hello and afternoon greets to you Missie Samm!
    I am just taking a quickie break (yes coffee) from putting lights on the outside. HAHA it is only 50º here so I better address that job while I can.
    I just clicked on the recipe care, it got bigger, then I dragged it to my desk top. I will print it out and force my daughter and her boyfriend make these.
    I love sugar. sugar sugar sugar. I know it is bad, but I am thin as a rail.
    I hope you have a marvelous day with sun and everything nice

    1. PS: love that little froggy purse too

  10. Dear Samm, as we celebrate our Thanksgiving this week, I am reminded of all I have to be thankful for. You, my friend are among those wonderful things! xoxox Christel

  11. Awesome recipe card design. Looking forward to trying the marshmallows. (if they are even close to the recipes in your book like the lemon quick bread (yum), the pumpkin date(absolutely delicious)or the pb granola (wow), I will have to make multiple batches for the family.

    Super cute frog purse.

    I will always be thankful for you and your inspiration. I will always be thankful that my sister told me about SewWeQuilt.
