Introduction: Indoor Marshmallow Roasting

Picture of Indoor Marshmallow Roasting

I love roasting marshmallows.  However, it is not often that I get this opportunity.  I live in a suburban area where outdoor fires are not permitted.  So, I resolved to roast marshmallows on a smaller scale.  Using a toothpick, I roasted mini-marshmallows over a candle.  This could probably be done with large marshmallows over a fireplace as well.

Step 1: Materials

You will need:  Marshmallows, a candle, and a toothpick.  That's all!

Step 2: Get Ready

Now let's start roasting some marshmallows.  First, light the candle.  Second, stick the toothpick through the marshmallow with the end of the toothpick sticking out a little from the end of the marshmallow.  Now, we are ready.

Step 3: Method

Roasting is simple.  Hold the marshmallow about an inch above the flame and slowly rotate it.  When it starts to get golden-brown or sizzle, than remove it.  It should be golden-brown on the outside and should be very soft and squishy. 
There is really no "correct way" to roast a marshmallow.  The way you should roast yours depends upon your taste.  This method just described is the method I have found to be best for my preferences.
Have fun!

I have all of the supplies and I now have a hankering for burnt marshmallows.

(Because they are the best)
