2.0 out of 5 stars Major misprint! 17 Feb 2013
By Helen W
Although the pictures are pretty, all the marshmallows are based around the one recipe, unfortunately in the basic Vanilla Marshmallows ingredients and method there is no mention of egg whites whatsoever, weird really considering they are the main ingredient! I thought perhaps I was going mad and the author had found a way to make them without using eggs but when following the recipe to the letter, I ended up with a gloopy mess. In the end I found a basic recipe online and used the book for inspiration for different flavourings so its not a total loss but very poor indeed in my opinion!

1.0 out of 5 stars Marshmallow recipies 1 Feb 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am a very experienced cook and buy many cook books. Personally just a bit disappointed with the range of recipies, probably more due to my personal taste. Might be just what you are looking for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book if you like marshmallows 19 Sep 2012
By Avid Reader Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
I purchased this book because I love to bake (I mainly like to eat, but I'll do what I have to do to get there.) I love this book. Personally, I have no interest in getting a M.A. in marshmallows, so I do not need a book that has a billion recipes. This book states that it is 30 recipes, no more, no less. The flavored marshmallow recipes are divided as follows:

Basic (vanilla, vegan, Marshmallow fluff---with variations for flavoring the fluff.)
Simple (cinnamon, toasted coconut, chocolate, peppermint, peanut butter and jelly)
Swirls (peanut butter banana swirled, chocolate covered caramel swirl, strawberry and Champagne, apple caramel swirl, merlot and chocolate swirl)
Beverage (cafe mocha, milk chocolate covered stout marshmallows with pretzels, earl gray and orange flavored mallows, root beer float flavored, irish cream, starawberry malted milkshake)
Fruity (meyer lemon, spiced cranberry, raspberry and rosewater,roasted pineapple, sour cherry and cardamon}
Treats (hot chocolate, gingerbread marshmallow ornaments, s'more marshmallows, marshmallow fondue, chocolate marshmallow brownies, the "Elvis" s'more...the end).

Why I like this one:

1. The variety
2. The fact that I don't have to make a special "marshmallow" syrup. Two of the other mallow books out there use a special "Sugar syrup" instead of corn syrup. A good and bad thing. Corn syrup is terrible, we all know that, but it makes great mallows. I like to be able to go out and buy the materials at the store, not make a syrup to make the mallows. I have tried to make and use sugar syrup before, but it ends up sticking to just about everything in my cabinet. Then the lid hardens, it's a mess.
3. Recipes have metric and US measurements (also the only mallow book that has this).
4. I do not need 200 recipes for marshmallows
5. The photography is absolutely beautiful. There is one photo for each recipe, so it's nice to see what the end product of every mallow looks like.
6. The recipes use a variety of techniques, not just adding flavored oils to mallows. (Ha ha, or swirls.)

Personally, I find this book the least intimidating for beginner marshmallow-makers and those who want to have fun with it. Great recipes, great pictures, great fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars mmm marshmallows 17 Sep 2012
By yum yum - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The recipes are easy to follow. I have already try several of the marshmallows receipes and found them delicious. The grandchildren's favorite so far has been the Elvis s'mores on page 62. The campagne and strawberry swirl marshmallows on page 25 is outstanding.

This book graphics are beautiful, pictures are realistic, and I will be giving this book as holiday gifts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love 17 Sep 2012
By Bonnie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book, plain and simple yields really great marshmallows. Texture, curing,and taste---everything works as directed. Nothing is soft or soggy (or too hard). I am shocked that one reviewer knocked the photography. The photography is actually beautiful!

I got this mainly for the chocolate covered stout marshmallow. We have a candy shop in my town that uses a lot of beers in their product, so I wanted to experiment with this one at home. It's so delicious. One thing I love about this book is that the marshmallows come out PERFECT via the directions, to a tee. I have made the root beer, vanilla and the banana peanut butter for a bake sale at my kid's school (my seven-year old made the vanilla with my supervision). The banana peanut butter is made not from corn syrup, but from banana nectar. The root beer also uses soda pop in place of corn syrup. I think I just like the use of natural ingredients in lieu of the Loranne oils or whatnot. They taste too strong.

All in all, definitely a book I recommend. Homemade marshmallows from MMMMM Marshmallows are definitely going to be in my Christmas cookie rotation.

I think this book is amazing!! As a novice "chef," I found the recipes in this book easy to follow and enjoyable--I can't wait to try some of them out with my nieces and nephew. Also, the pictures are enticing!

1.0 out of 5 stars I must be missing a key component.... 28 Oct 2013
By Simon - Published on Amazon.com
And I think that component is some sort of electric mixer food guard. Making marshmallows using Hilker's recipe is a very sticky affair. Both my boyfriend and I have attempted her basic vanilla marshmallow recipe, and each time we were thwarted by minute 5 of the beating step—the warm marshmallow mixture rides up the beater attachments of the electric hand-held mixer, catches in the upper region of the attachments' arms, and even clogs the mixer's gears! Our second mixer barely escaped with it's life.

All of the advanced recipes refer to this first basic recipe. I am glad physics hasn't been an early obstacle for any other marshmallow makers, but it has certainly been for us.

I have not given up hope that someone (Carol, can you hear me?) will explain how better to go about this, but until then we will be looking to other recipes.
