- Before you begin this recipe, please take a class from a professional on working with sugar.
- Working with sugar will burn your fingers so know before you start that your fingers will develop burn blisters.
- Remember, the sugar is at 320 degrees F, and that will burn you.
- I use a special sugar box that includes a special heat source, If you don't have one, you can work in front of the oven. Set the oven to 300 degrees F. Open the oven door and place the silpat on the oven door. It provides a similar effect to the sugar box heater.
Here's more encouraging news. I haven't asked Martha if she has a recipe, which she probably does. And she will likely suggest that this recipe can be accomplished easily at home by a novice candy maker. It will be a good thing. The marshmallows of last year were from Martha, and even though I'm still finding bits of sugar & egg white stickiness all around the KithenAid, they were so worth it.
