If you haven’t noticed the subtle evolution of gourmet marshmallows in your store or internet travels you might want to pay attention.  Marshmallows are on the verge of being the next big craze.  I’ve been a big fan of marshmallows all my life.  The marshmallows I make are to adults as some literature can be, if you get my drift.  They are sensuous and naughty.  My favorite are Kahlua marshmallows that I encourage guests to plunk in hot chocolate.  MMMMMMmmmmmm.

I will be making these treats for the already decadent hot chocolate we will be serving at The Rock The Holidays Extravaganza being held at the Canfield Casino on December 11th.  Haven’t got your tickets?  Shameful.

Some numbers to make my point will astonish you.  Retail marshmallow sales (excluding Walmart) totaled about $146 million in 2008, up from $141 million the year before, according to market research firm Information Resources Inc.  Wow!  Up $5 million in one year.

This past summer I noticed a larger strawberry flavored marshmallow from the famous Campfire Marshmallow company.  But there are some talented people out there with some great marshmallow ideas that are rocking this chic sweet  back into vogue.  Here are just a couple of my favorites easily ordered on-line.

Chocolate Stuffed Marshmallows from Gud Fud

Or Luxurious French Marshmallows from the exclusive Recchiuti’s of San Francisco

 

Caramel Swirl Marshmallows from Plush Puffs
