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.
