Toasted marshmallow is a very popular sweet treat. And for this reason it has a whole day dedicated to the lovely, gooey, scrummy confectionery!
National Toasted Marshmallow Day is celebrated on August 30. Marshmallow is a type of sugar candy. It originally was a medical confection to treat angina, made from Althaea officinalis, the marshmallow plant. In its modern form, marshmallow is typically made with sugar, gelatin, and corn starch. An as we are sure you well know, when toasted or roasted over open flame, marshmallows develop a caramelized outer skin with a runny, delightful layer underneath.
How this day began is unclear but we don’t need an excuse to celebrate a staple of the confectionery world!
To celebrate the National Toasted Marshmallow Day, make a campfire and indulge yourself with this sweet treat.
