I purchased this book after making marshmallows once and the instructions in this book are very helpful. I have made the strawberry marshmallows and they turned out great. Book is good for those who have never made marshmallows before.

When I told my husband I had a cookbook that teaches how to make homemade marshmallows, he asked, “Don’t we need some kind of special ingredient, like marshmallow root or something?” The author of Marshmallow Madness, Shauna Sever, said this is an issue she deals with frequently, even at airport security! While it’s true that the ancient Egyptians invented this delightful concoction using marshmallow root, unflavored gelatin works perfectly for creating these fluffy treats. Most people just buy their marshmallow stash at the grocery store, but the author assures us that we can make them easily at home, and like pretty much anything homemade, they trump store bought every time. Plus, they are so gorgeous just to look at! Marshmallow Madness has recipes for marshmallows made in candy molds for perfect shapes, ones with fruit purees (and pumpkin!), mini marshmallows, plus dessert recipes, too. Some of my favorites were the key lime pie (dipped in graham cracker crumbs) and the s’mores cupcakes (with toasted marshmallow topping). Of course, we had to try it out, so we embarked on making the vanilla marshmallows for our first try, with a Mexican cocoa coating, perfect for adding to Mexican hot chocolate which is a staple in our home. Everyone in the family was pretty excited to eat “homemade” marshmallows, and they turned out light, fluffy and really weren’t that hard to make after all! We can’t wait to try some other flavors!

The Good Stuff Great idea having the puffy cover for the cookbook - really adds to the overall enjoyment of the book Original idea Fantastic for bringing unique housewarming treats (Wife says also fab for wowing authors, publishing and twitter pals -- not to mention sugar happy co-workers) Lots of unique and unusual recipes for different occasions Quite a few different tastes and textures The introduction is extremely helpful (MUST READ BEFORE STARTING ANY OF THE RECIPES), interesting and highly entertaining - it really gets you in the mood to experiment and have fun Wife and I had a great time on a rainy February afternoon trying out the different treats - 10 yr old even helped Fun change of pace from cookies, fudge and chocolate - it will impress friends and family From our experience we really recommend you put all your ingredients/tools together before you start your recipe as many steps really must be done quickly.The Not So Good Stuff Should be a disclaimer - Don't try to make the recipes before you read the introduction Another good suggestion would be mentioning if you don't have a stand mixer (must get one soon) that it would be extremely beneficial to have two people working together to make these. Wife made two batches by herself and was a wee bit stressed while doing it but when we worked together it was so much smoother and she didn't get all snappy or depressed afterwards (yes readers he says crap like this all the time, and no I have not killed him yet - though tempting I tell you) Once you have tasted one of these homemade marshmallows -- you will never ever want to have a bagged one again!Favorite Recipes Cookies n' Cream Marshmallows Concord Grape Marshmallows Margarita Marshmallows (Get yourself a good lime juice though!) Sea Salt Caramel Swirl Marshmallows Mallow Cones (Wife gave these to Anne Rice)Who Should/Shouldn't Use I would recommend this to anyone who knows their way around a kitchen and who doesn't get intimidated easily (what he really is saying is not for my wife LOL!) Definitely for the more experience cook/baker - although my wife did get a hang of it pretty quickly If you are going to make these recipes all the time -- trust us -- buy a stand up mixer - our really good hand held one took a beating and probably will never be the same again4.75 Dewey'sI received this from Random House in exchange for an honest review

No metric units. I also own a similar book on marshmallows. I returned this. My other problem is the use of sugar syrup. I like using corn syrup. When it comes to marshmallow books, I prefer Marshmallows by Elaine Talanian.
