Strawberry marshmallows

Strawberry Marshmallows

June 6th, 2019 | Süßes

In Hamburg they call marshmallows “Hamburg Speck”. Who doesn’t immediately think of the Hamburg Dom [one of the biggest, longest lasting and oldest outdoor fairs in the world] of love apples and Ferris wheel. This recipe for strawberry marshmallows, however, actually tastes even better than the memory can be.

Strawberry Marshmallows

No industrially produced marshmallow has this aroma of fresh strawberries – so fluffy and tender it melts on the tongue. Try it! Together with fresh forest berries, the marshmallows can be arranged for a delicious dessert plate.
