Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is Mom's original marshmallow recipe. Directions aren't very clear. Later on, she found a much easier recipe that she used ever since. Hope I can find it and put it in the book. She would make chocolate covered marshmallow rabbits and eggs for Easter. She used cornstarch to keep the marshmallow from sticking to the molds. If I remember correctly, sometimes she would put egg dents in cornstarch and then fill the dents with marshmallow and when they were set, she would dip them in chocolate. They were much better than the store bought ones. Kelly D. Smith
