Spring Into Raspberry & Anise Marshmallows

Here in San Francisco, Spring has sprung. The birds are chirping, the sun is out and the cherry blossom trees are shooting stars!

With the levity of season comes also a levity of dessert. My taste buds begin to transition from craving rich, warm and decadent dessert to lighter, fresher, cleaner tastes.

So what better way to lighten up Sweet Lady Sass than with marshmallows!

Just to keep it interesting, I gave 1/2 a raspberry flavor and the other an anise flavor for the more adventurous. 

You can really make them any color or flavor you want! The recipe is here. Just omit the vanilla bean and cardamom and replace the vanilla extract with whatever flavoring you want! For the raspberry  I used 1 tsp of extract and for the anise I only used 3/4 tsp.

So put down the Peeps and opt for something a little more magnfique!

Oh, also, marshmallows make great gifts! Wrap them up in some parchment, tie a bow and give em' away!
