Whether you like lightly toasted marshmallows or raging flamers, here’s the proper way to get the job done:
Step 1: Obtain a clean, long-handled stick or barbecue fork suitable for spearing marshmallows. Extended clothes hangers work well too.
Step 2: Push one or two marshmallows onto the end of the stick or barbecue fork so the entire marsh- mallow is secured.
Step 3: Hold the marshmallow over the fire or coals, positioning it so the marshmallow is suspended 1 to 3 inches above the heat source.
Step 4: Rotate your utensil when the underside is a warm brown color, so the uncooked side hovers above the fire.
Step 5: Continue to rotate the marshmallow until all sides are golden brown.
Step 6: Remove the marshmallow from the fire, keeping in mind that metal utensils can get pretty hot on the end nearest the fire-handle with care.
Step 7: Slide the golden brown goo gently off the utensil when it has cooled and you’re able to comfortably touch it.
Step 8: Eat.
