      For whatever reason, I just can't get this marshmallow recipe to work for me. I substitute in Martha Stewart's when marshmallows are called for. It never sets and I've tried four times (the third and fourth were because I keep forgetting it won't work - I swear it won't happen again). I wonder what the problem is? Besides me, of course. If anyone knows. . .

Publishers Text

Chocolate Mint Meltaways, PB&J Cups, Chai Latte Lollipops, Cherry Cordials, Spicy Pralines, and the cult favourite, Beer and Pretzel Caramels, Plus candy bars - the Twist Bar, the Nutty Bar, the Coconut-Lime Bar, inspired by commercial favourites (Snickers, Twix) but taken to new heights of deliciousness. And the French-style sea salt caramels that Daniel Boulud claimed were better than those he'd tasted in France. Yes, you really can make these sublime treats at home thanks to Liz Gutman and Jen King, the classically trained pastry chefs who traded in their toques to make candy - and now lead the candy-craft movement as proprietors of Liddabit Sweets, the Brooklyn confectionery whose products have drawn the attention of "The Early Show", "Fox and Friends", the Cooking Channel, "O", "The Oprah Magazine", "Real Simple, Food & Wine, GQ", and more.
