A Testimonial from a Carnivore

This testimonial was posted in the comments section today from a carnivore who has never attempted vegan marshmallows. Thanks Logan!

"So my two best friends are getting married tomorrow. They're both vegan. So I decided, as a wedding present to them, that I would make them vegan marshmallows.

I text messaged the bride and asked her if she had ever made them. Despite being an avid vegan baker (and an amazing one, at that) she had never made vegan marshmallows.

After reading all of the posts I was a bit leery about using my KitchenAid mixer for the process. Everyone was talking about messes and splashguards and the stuff creeping up the beater. I asked EVERYONE i knew if they had a mixer. Everyone either had a Kitchenaid or a hand mixer, so I couldn't borrow anyones.

My genutine showed up yesterday. At about 11 p.m. I threw caution to the wind and started making everything with my KitchenAid. The pan I used for the sugar mix was a bit small, which prevented really vigorous stirring, but other than that everything worked FLAWLESSLY. There was a bit of crawling by the fluff and the gooey marshmallow mixture, but it wasn't uncontained and it never interfered with the mixing process. In fact, the mess was relatively contained.

I followed the recipe exactly and they turned out wonderfully. Tonight I'm going to make 4-8 more batches (the wedding is potluck-ish). Thank you thank you thank you for all of the work you put into this recipe. I'm a dedicated carnivore and these marshmallows stand up to the best non-vegan marshmallows out there. for serious.
