Turkish Delight Marshmallows
I confess this idea was not mine. (A big thanks to Bree for this one!) I had a fail making Turkish Delight and then when the G & T marshmallows turned out so brilliantly the suggestion was made to do another batch right then and there and make them Turkish Delight inspired. Well delight is right! LOVE these. They are pretty and delicious. I love the use of the Tonic water in place of water, as it adds a little tang that balances the sweetness. Perfect grown up marshies!! Gift away!
