This is my first post in Cooking Smiley Normally I crochet but after seeing WildeHeart2105 Chocolate Swirl Marshmallows http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=328091.0, I became obsessed with trying to make marshmallows.  So I followed the Alton Brown recipe and added the chocolate chips but they didn't swirl like i hoped and ended up just being chocolate marshmallows.  They were super delicious though!  They tasted like the inside of a 3 Musketeers bar! 

Since I've learned how to make them, my Mother-In-Law have been brainstorming of other types of marshmallows to make.  I'm going to make peppermint ones for Christmas.  I'll let you know how they turn out!

Ok on to pictures.

I went a little overboard on the powdered sugar/cornstarch mixture.

They kind of look like the Turkish Delight in the new(er) The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe movie. Completely unrelated, but still an observation.

They look delicious though. I've never made marshmallows before - are they terribly difficult?

Nicely Done!  Working with sugar and egg whites isn't easy, it's pretty sticky.

i have my first two batches cooling in the fridge right now! i made smores (inspired by a seller on etsy) which is a vanilla bean marshmallow base with chocolate chips mixed in just like yours. then instead of powdered sugar they're coated in crushed graham crackers. so far they look awesome! i also made a batch of peppermint marshmallows i tinted minty green. i'll probably dip most of them in chocolate and save a few for cocoa. the process was not hard at all and low mess. everything goes away with warm water! i'll let you know how the setting/cutting/tasting part goes. oh, and i followed an epicurious recipe.
