I am on a marshmallow making kick for sure. I already made a set for an Easter post.
These four leaf clover shaped marshmallows were inspired by a bit of nostalgia from my childhood, Lucky Charms cereal.
I think I got to eat them once or twice max. We never ate sugar cereals as children. My mother was way ahead of her time. She always shopped at the health food stores. No soda, chips or foods with preservatives were found in our home. McDonald's was once or twice a year for special treats. It seemed unfair sometimes a little weird at the time but I thank her for it now.
However, now that I am all grown up (sort of) I can make my own.
Shamrock Mint Marshmallows
I followed THIS recipe from Piece of Cake's wonderful baking blog. She made wonderful bubblegum flavor marshmallows. I followed her directions exactly, added some mint extract and then used a small clover cutter to cut out the shapes.
