Tuesday, August 30 is either "National Toasted Marshmallow Day " or simply "National Marshmallow Day" -- your Chocolate Priestess found both variations on the various food fun calendars and resources I turn to when I want to find another opportunity for you to enjoy a bit of chocolate. Once more we have some offerings from the good ladies at 240sweet who have sent three more flavors of gourmet marshmallows our way.
The first of these is a "Cookies & Cream" variety that is basically their handmade white marshmallow coated in chocolate cookie crumbs. Wouldn't it be awesome if they could mix the cookie crumbs into the marshmallow? I wonder if that would change it too much chemically and make it not turn into the soft solids we can marshmallows?
Finally I got to try the Dark Chocolate variety of marshmallows and I was as impressed as I was promised I'd be by the ladies from 240Sweet plus a few readers and friends who have tried these. Just like with all their marshmallows this is all natural though they don't list cocoa, cocoa butter, or anything like that only "natural flavors" here. But it certainly tasted and smelled like darker cocoa to me.
240sweet or you may find them at local shops or events around central Indiana. Here is Samantha at my local Bloomingfood store back in July promoting their 4th of July specials of red, white, and blue marshmallows. As you can see she loves her job and marshmallows. They have a lot to be happy about because this summer they've been noticed by several big names in entertaining like Martha Stewart. But they are still Indiana Artisans just of the fluffy, puffy kind.
