Did you know marshmallows are super easy to make from scratch? I probably wouldn’t make plain marshmallows from scratch because I’m all about the easiest way possible, and it’s obviously easiest to buy plain ol’ regular marshmallows. For the record, I also hold this opinion about standard pie crusts. But with marshmallows made from scratch, you can make so many different flavors! And I can’t think of a better flavor for spring than Lemon Lavender Marshmallows! These are light and bright and are the perfect flavor to bring spring!
You’ll want a stand mixer or you’ll get a solid arm workout, and you’ll need a candy thermometer for this, but if you don’t have one you can get a good one for super cheap! I’ve been using this AcuRite thermometer recently and am loving it more than the ones you may see more often that have the round faces on top.

When you use a candy thermometer, you’ll want to make sure the metal tip is not touching the bottom of the pot, but otherwise you just clip it on to the side of the pot and it does all the work! And be careful when you remove it because it can get hot to the touch. I always use a potholder to take it off the pot.
These Lemon Lavender Marshmallows are light and fresh and so delicious. I have just been eating these straight out of the storage baggie, but let me know in the comments what you would do with these delicious treats!
