Last week I found a bag of marshmallows in the mark-down bin. I gave them a little squeeze and since they were still soft, I tossed them (gently!) into the cart. Yesterday was our first real snow of the season and, as happens every year, I get a serious hankering for homey comfort food when the flakes start flying. Therefore, part of dinner included a sweet potato casserole. Good thing I had those marshmallows on hand. Sadly, when I opened the bag those puffs of sweetness were all stuck together. It wasn’t that big of a deal to rip them apart to top the casserole, but I was left with half a bag of a marshmallow mess. Suddenly, I recalled a tip that I had read not too long ago. I pulled the rest of the marshmallows apart and put them into a bowl. I sprinkled them with about 1/2 tablespoon of cornstartch, then tossed. Oila! Like-new marshmallows. It’s not like I rescued an oil-coated duckling by washing it with Dawn, but still… I placed my stick-free rescues in an airtight container where they await my craving for s’mores!
