Marshmallow Eggs

Marshmallow Eggs

Marshmallow, Guimauve, Malvavisco – whatever you call them, they are here in the form of sparkly eggs, and just in time for Easter.

Marshmallow Egg Prep 1

We were inspired by the recipe, technique and photos in the beautiful Bouchon Bakery cookbook, and even though this technique was a bit messy for two experienced pastry professionals, it would be even more terrifying fun to make these marshmallow eggs with kids. Little kids grow into grown-ups, so basically everybody loves these gooey, sticky sweets – and the memories associated with creating something this fun will stick with you (and to your fingers) for a long, long time.

The finished marshmallow eggs are stunningly simple and beautiful, and a bowl of these sparkling beauties would make a perfect springtime centerpiece for an Easter table, but only for a few minutes – because they will quickly disappear!

    Carolyn and Alen, they are beautiful!! And seeing your creations, Carolyn, reminds me of the time when you were little and following Aunt Debbie’s instructions on making beautiful Easter Eggs we could and do enjoy year after year.I placed two holes in uncooked eggs and you “blew out” the contents. I can still see your little face…!
