    Tropical flavors in an amazing texture

  • I have to confess I am a huge fan of marshmallows, I just love their texture. Not many things are better than a marshmallow in a wood stick over the fire in a bonfire with friends and music playing. I have to say I was a girl scout for more than 10 years, so this was a really usual thing on my weekends, and marshmallow was a huge part of it.

    But this ones I have to say are so much better than any other I have tried because everything homemade is so much better. Usually, marshmallow bags that you buy in supermarkets have some unpronounceable ingredients and that is just a no-no!

    They are delicious and have a lot of passionfruit flavor, I did it with frozen pure because in Chile we don’t have passion fruit. With the vanilla seeds combination, it is just perfect.

    They are the perfect gift for anyone because let’s be honest, who doesn’t like marshmallows? When I was cooking them I felt like I was in Colombia or Brasil or any of these amazing countries that have the luck to have passion fruit everywhere.
