What Are Some Popular Recipes Using Marshmallows?

Some popular recipes using marshmallows include S'mores, Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows, and Rice Krispies Treats. Marshmallows are a sugar-based candy with a spongy consistency, and they are usually used in dessert recipes.

To make S'mores, begin by gently heating 1 large marshmallow over an open flame until it's lightly browned and beginning to melt. Sandwich the hot marshmallow and a 1.5-ounce chocolate bar between two halves of a graham cracker. Allow a moment to cool before serving.

To make Sweet Potatoes with Marshmallows, start by buttering a casserole dish. Using an electric mixer, beat 2 tablespoons of melted butter, 2 to 4 tablespoons of brown sugar, 3 cups of hot mashed sweet potatoes, 1 whole beaten egg and 3/4 teaspoon of salt. When the mixture becomes smooth, transfer it to the casserole dish, then dot with 2 tablespoons of butter and spread 1 dozen marshmallows on top. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until the tops of the marshmallows are golden brown. Serve immediately.

For Rice Krispies Treats, start by melting 3 tablespoons of butter in a large saucepan over low heat. Add 4 cups of Jet-Puffed Miniature Marshmallows, and stir until melted. Remove from heat, and add 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well-coated. Coat a 13-by-9-inch pan with cooking spray. Using a buttered spatula or wax paper, evenly press the mixture into the pan. Let cool and cut into squares.
