      Fairly easy to make. I doubted the "no stir" on the stove top. But it was fine lol. My husband was SO excited. I tried not to roll in powdered sugar. But they were so sticky, I had to. They were very good. I don't know how they would roast over a flaim. But they smashed easily between graham crackers. In half of the pan I sprinkled in chocolate chips. They are fantastic too!

    These are fabulous! I've made these since the recipe was first published in Martha Stewart Living (not sure of the issue date), making them each summer. I always get asked for the recipe, ALWAYS! LOL Also, I replace 3 tablespoons of the water with good quality vanilla extract to make them extra vanilla-y! Easy to do and yummy! I also made some for Christmas a couple of years ago, using peppermint candy oil and crushed candy canes--loved these in hot chocolate!

      Food grade carrageenan has not been shown to be carcinogenic. Degraded or low molecular weight carrageenan is a suspected carcinogen and should not be used in food products. Tests have shown cancer causing properties in both animal and human tissue. Food grade carrageenan may affect some people by giving them stomach or intenstinal discomfort but is still generally regarded as safe (GRAS).

    My first try was a success. It's actually easy and they are just like the store bought one but softer.

    Hello! I love this recipe. I had made marshmallows from another site, and I wasn't too pleased with the results. I decided I wanted to make another atempt of making marshmallows. Insead of going to the same site. I went to the address bar and typed in homemade marshmallows and I searched many sites and then Martha's popped up. I made it last night. The other site to me yo use corn stratch to coat the marshmallows and brside the texture wasn't right either. Martha's came out just right.
