This is the perfect holiday to top off a summer vacation. It is held each year on August 30, so enjoy an end-of-summer vacation by taking a camping trip or having a backyard bonfire (perhaps around your fire pit or outdoor fireplace) and toast marshmallows.
The marshmallow is a type of confectionery made from sugar, water, and gelatin (whipped to a solid, but soft, consistency) then coated with corn starch. It is used as a filling in baking. It is also molded into shapes. You can buy marshmallows by the bag or make your own with this recipe here on the Food Network.
The most popular way to eat a marshmallow is in a S'mores! Nothing better than a night around a campfire, singing songs, enjoying the outdoors, and topping it off with this sweet treat.
