A couple of years ago, I hosted a fondue party for Valentine's Day. I thought it would be fun to dip marshmallows into chocolate fondue and, always one to pay special attention to little details, I wanted heart-shaped, pale pink marshmallows. Since pink heart marshmallows are not sold, I decided to try making them. Now, I'm addicted to homemade marshmallows! The method is surprisingly easy, but you do need an electric mixer. They're basically a combination of sugar, corn syrup, and gelatin. This mixture is whipped until tripled in volume, resulting in a light fluffy mess of marshmallow cream. It's so pillowy and delicious, it's hard not to lick the bowl. Start a day ahead: the finished marshmallows need a night to set.
