Making marshmallows for Easter, a tradition around here. And almond brittle, and truffles . . .
I cut the marshmallows with marshmallow cutters (found, of course, at Williams Sonoma some years ago) into chicks and bunnies--the chicks get rolled in yellow-tinted coconut (think Peeps) and the bunnies in cocoa powder (so velvety! so cute!) I know, how obsessive can we get?, but last year was so full with the move and all that we didn't do the homemade candy or the scavenger hunt, so I feel like I need get back to normal already.
I am looking for some new recipes, but can't find anything earth shaking. I might flavor the brittle the way my sister did for her wedding favors, with the Persian twists of rose water and saffron. And I am thinking of doing the truffles with coconut cream so I can have some, but otherwise, Tradition Prevails.
It is Spring therefore It Is Raining. Not great conditions for candy making--terribly humid, but there you go: I don't make the calendar, I just respond to it. So Easter candy it is. No matter what the experts say. If it all turns out, I will have to post pictures for you. Just please, help me to remember that the marshmallows are drying out in the turned-off oven, or we might disappoint the kids two years in a row . . .
