Question about Marshmallows
I am going to attempt to make home-made marshmallows this year. Most recipes I have read said to not cover them for storage (at least, in the beginning).....my question is how long will they keep? We are driving home for Xmas and I want to take them with me....do I put the in tupperware?

I have made mine with toasted coconut. I line my pan bottom with toasted coconut-pour marshmellow in and top with the rest of the toasted coconut. I let sit and when I cut them I roll sides in more toasted coconut. They travel well and usually don't last very long!
The store bought kind are usually rolled into corn starch. 10x sugar may work and you could add a bit of cocoa pwd to it for a chocolate coated one.
The variations are unlimited-
Chopped candy canes
sugar and cinnamon
I just made peppermint marshmallows. I used Martha Stewart's MM recipe, and added 1/8 teaspoon peppermint OIL. I swirled in the oil and some red food coloring in the end. I use a 50/50 ratio of potato starch and powdered sugar, on the bottom of the pan, and on top of the marshmallows. I dried for about 24 hours.
I cut them with an oiled pizza cutter. I melted a chopped bar of Lindt 70 percent, until it was about 2/3 melted in the microwave. I stirred it until cool and dipped the top of the marshmallows in it. Because I didn't get the chocolate too hot it never fell out of temper. I sprinkled the top with a little crushed peppermint candy.
They were SO delicious.
