    First time making marshmallows, the recipe was super easy to follow. Used a handheld electric mixer (not enough counter space for a stand mixer) and during the 12 min mix, manually turned the bowl continuously alternating anti/clockwise only paused 30 seconds to pour a glass of wine! Used cookie cutters, with cooking spray, to create shapes, washed them after each use. Will make this again, experimenting with different flavors.

    This recipe is so easy and very good!!! I was a little nervous about trying it because I thought I would end up with a sticky mess. However, I didn't have a single problem with them sticking. I greased the pan and the plastic wrap and nothing stuck to the plan or plastic wrap.

    I re-read this recipe at least 5 times in doubt, but embarrassingly opted to go with what it said rather than common sense! I think there is a typo, you don't really need to grease the pan you need to grease the bottom layer of plastic wrap. I followed it as directed, and when it came time for cutting, the marshmallow mixture was glued to the bottom layer of plastic!! I salvaged most of it and the recipe is well worth making, impressive and yummy! But the mix needs to be on a greased surface
