The season for
s’mores is right around the corner. Variations of this classic
summer treat continue to grow in popularity, but don’t let a rise in seasonal
demand lead you rock-hard, dried-out marshmallows!
If you’re not enrobing the marshmallow, roll it in dextrose after it is cut to prevent it from drying out. For marshmallows bound for the
enrober, adding a little dextrose to the top and bottom will also help the chocolate stick.
Some candy makers use powdered sugar for the same effect, however, the added sweetness
from the powdered sugar may make your marshmallows too sweet.
