Roasted marshmallows are a staple of Girl Guide campfire, whether eaten on their own or added to a s’more.  Have you ever thought to make your own.  This would make a fun project at camp.

Marshmallows are primarily gelatin and sugar.  You can also replace vanilla with another flavour such as peppermint or add a little food colour.  Do buy a candy thermometer though, I tried to make them once without one and it turned into a gooey mess.

There are lots of recipes online but I rather liked this one.
