This Christmas I asked for and received a candy thermometer from my Grandmother. Last year I learned the hard way that the meat thermometer does not work for making candy. Not that I make a lot of candy but every now and then the mood strikes me. Last year it was peanut brittle. This year it is MARSHMALLOWS! I love marshmallows! I always have, growing up peanut butter and fluff was my favorite sandwich (in truth it still is). I make s'mores year round. During the summer bonfires are just for roasting marshmallows after I have eaten my fill I get bored with the fire.
