Not a big fan of marshmallow cause all those that I bought from the supermarket it tasted the same to me. How I wish there’s different taste of marshmallow. It would be awesome to make Rocky Road with extraordinary marshmallow. So I googled for marshmallow recipes. Turn out that there’s lots of variety of marshmallow. I am so excited that on the same day I went out to buy the ingredients to make those cute pinky marshmallows.

This is another extremely simple recipe that anyone can do it. It’s a little tricky as it can get messy due to the stickiness. But worth a try!

For rolling the marshmallows:

¾ cup (105g) confectioners’ sugar, sifted
