Homemade Marshmallows

My sweet aunt came over last week and spent a few hours with us and passed on her delicious marshmallow recipe that will definitely become a regular around here. Baylor had one sticky finger and he was running for the hills, while the girls basically bathed in the marshmallow stickies.
