coconut covered marshmallows

dearbaaah Nov 23, 2008 08:24 PM


i'm making a super secret thanksgiving surprise for my first annual American Thanksgiving (in toronto) and my treat requires coconut covered marshmallows but I can't seem to find any at my local grocery store.

Are they a specialty item?
Does anyone know where I can find some?

    You mean like Snowballs? Try a UK import store.

    In Hamilton, you can get them at Denningers as well.

        Assuming that you're using the marshmallows in a cooking/baking recipes, "fancy artisinal" may not be what you're looking for. For a more pedestrian version of these candies, look for them at the kosher section of your grocery store.

          If you are referring to the marshmallow covered in toasted coconut, you can get them in most candy stores (I know for a fact that the Sugar Mountain at Yonge & Eglington has them).

            I saw a bunch of different kinds of marshmallows at Queen of Tarts last week - you could call and check to see if they have any.

              funny, i saw them tonight while getting a coffee.
              sweet escape at the distillery
              $3.45 for a bag, i think they're a specialty item for the next little while.
