Roasting Marshmallows

Our grand-kids love an outdoor fire

and they love roasting marshmallows.

++++++

There are some people who believe roasting a marshmallow

means putting a couple of light-brown spots on it

or just making it slightly warm.

Our grand-kids believe if the marshmallow

doesn’t briefly become a flaming beacon of black carbon,

barely containing the near-liquid molten goo within,

you are doing it wrong.

COMMENTS:

I happen to agree with your grandchildren, probably because that is the way I have always roasted them. They should know, however, that there is a NEW marshmallow at the grocery store now that is gigantic.
It is about 4″ square. It might have a chance to come away from the fire without being charred just due to the shear size of the thing. I guess next will come graham crackers the size of dinner plates to accomodate the NEW marshmallows. Imagine how big the chocolate bars will be to make S’mores.
