    This is actually a really interesting recipe--I make all sorts of ice creams, gelatos, sorbets and other frozen treats, and I NEVER considered using marshmallows for anything other than, say, Rocky Road. But what a fabulous idea. I'm going to have to try this, especially since we tend to always have lots of mini marshmallows in the pantry, and they usually end up going stale before we can use them. Can't wait to try it.
