Project 52: Jumbo Marshmallows

My parents got our girls these jumbo marshmallow for roasting. They are called campfire marshmallows weighing at 1 ounce per marshmallow. Just imagine the amount of sugar in one of those things. So last weekend we invited some friends over to roast these gigantic marshmallows in our fire pit. It only takes one marshmallow to make a s’more.

And our girls loved every bit of it. They each had one and that was enough for the year. The marshmallows roasted surprisingly well considering its size.

» Tell me… Do you like to do camp fires in the summers? What do you like to roast?

This week’s feature is from Savor This Moment where her child pinned a message in her pin cushion… Aw. Totally melted my heart.

And the second picture is from Peanut to Princess showing her daughter’s first sewing project. I love that she start her out so young with her own Singer sewing machine. So talented.

    Oh, I just love marshmallows :) I could so eat one (or more) of those big ones! I never roasted them, although I was always curious about that, seeing it in all american movies and tv shows… Do you supose you could make smores in the microwave?

      I get those specifically for s’mores! And when we can’t roast them outside, I do it inside under the broiler of my oven! Just put your bottom graham, your chocolate, your marshmallow, and broil away! Then add the top graham when they come out. We’ve also added pecans, coconut, almonds, and once, cinnamon to the mix just the be different. Kids (and husband) loved them!!

    I love a warm toasted marshmallow. I should have hubby make a fire (in our fireplace since it’s still so cold here).

    Oooohh! We love marshmallows too! We make s’mores at least 3 or 4 times a year. For some reason, no matter the time of year, a fire is so cozy. Makes me want to make some s’mores right now…..

    Also, thanks for sharing my sewing pic! That girl loves her sewing machine already :)

    Sabi- you can make s’mores in the microwave. Just microwave the marshmallow for no more than five seconds. Then take the chocolate and graham cracker and put the marshmallow on them. The marshmallow doesn’t get the fire roasted taste, but it gets all melted still.

    We love roasted marshmellows so much so that we roast them in our fireplace indoors during the winter, over the propane stove during the spring/fall and of course in the firepit during the summer. And this post made me so anxious for summer.

    OMG! We have the Jumbo “Smarshmallows” (as my 2.5yo call’s them) as normal size here in America. Go figure. We think the small one’s are the bomb! We have them in different colors too. I would do a google on Gourmet Marshmallows to find different shapes and colors if you were a real “Smarshmallow” loving fun gal!
    Check out this recipe. We did it and it’s fun! You can add color, but it’s not as pretty as white. I will stop here. You get how much I love these pretty sticky suckers! (ok one more… …place on bamboo stick, dip in icing and sprinkle)
