Baru Handcrafted Marshmallows
It's getting really chilly lately, and I just feel like snuggling up under a blanket and have something warm with something sweet to take the miserable weather away (my workout downfall!).
One of the things I will go for in a cold day is marshmallows with a hot cup of tea (can't do cocoa all the time!), but I'm fairly picky about them. I love them soft and pillowy, so I'll never go for those in the supermarket. The only one that I do like can only be found in smaller stores, and I don't normally go shopping except in our local supermarket.
I can make my own marshmallows, and fresh ones are always the best. But it's quite a bit of work too for something that doesn't last (they disappear too soon).
When I heard about Baru, a company that sells handcrafted marshmallows, I wanted to give it a try, not only because I think that their Christmas gifts look rather cute, but if they can give me the occasional fix I need without me needing to make my own, that would be fabulous too!
I was kindly sent their handcrafted Raspberry & Mint marshmallow to try, which comes with 6 chunky squares of pretty marshmallows for £2.75. I do think it's quite expensive for normal indulgences, but they are handcrafted in Belgium, and they are really delicious!
The Raspberry & Mint flavour is quite Christmassy, and I felt a tiny Raspberry seed in one of the marshmallow, which surprised me because it meant that they used real raspberry puree to make these fluffy marshmallows. The texture is great too.
