Best way to end a summer night? Roasting marshmallows by a fire and making s’mores! This was by far one of my favorite things to do growing up. My whole family loves s’mores and if we were having a fire before my Dad was done milking cows, one of us would run a s’more down to the barn for him to enjoy.
Now that Ian and I live in an apartment, our s’more days are limited to when we visit my family. To make these evenings even more special, I tried my hand at making my own marshmallows. I experimented with a few flavor infusions and settled on these strawberry swirl marshmallows!
Once they are lightly toasted and sandwiched between a piece of chocolate and two graham crackers you can dive into a delicious s’more that tastes like a chocolate covered strawberry. Pure perfection! Just be warned, they can be a bit messy!
To make your own strawberry swirl marshmallows at home, follow this recipe. Once you have the marshmallow batter poured out into your container, dollop a few spoonfuls of strawberry jelly on top and drag a wooden kabob skewer through the batter to create a swirl effect.
