Melting marshmallows?

Asked by HotAsIce911 (156points) July 9th, 2009

I want to melt marshmallows and mix it with peanut butter, because I’m disgusting. Should I use a pan or a microwave?

I would melt them over the pan

Why not just get a jar of Marshmallow Fluff?

in a pan, low heat with a little melted butter to keep it from sticking.

You can also just dip the marshmallows into the peanut butter and eat them like that.

Don’t use the microwave, I microwaved a marshmallow once and it was a freaking disaster.

Use a double boiler. Pot of water, bowl with marshmallows in it, placed in the hot water.

definately in a pan with low heat and some butter, once you get them melted, then add the peanutbutter… and for what it’s worth, that does NOT sound disgusting to me… (peanut butter rice krispies anyone?)

In a double boiler-that is a pan that fitts into another pan like a steamer with no holes. You put water in the lower part and heat it on med lo. Put the marshmallows in the upper part and they will melt gently without burning or sticking.

Double boilers come in handy when cooking with sugar and milk

You can also use an aluminum mixing bowl that can rest on top of the pot with the boiling water. as long as the bow can come in contact with the hot water.

Better yet, take a whole stick of butter, melt it. Add a whole jar of peanut butter, melt it & mix it together. Add a whole bag of marshmallows. Mix it together. Add 7 cups of Rice Krispies. Mix. Put in a a 9×13 pan. Cover in chocolate frosting. Enjoy.

You’re welcome.

@dalepetrie You forgot the raisins, walnuts and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Excuse me as I slip into a diabetic coma.

@galileogirl – oh hell no, that would be a bastardization, especially the raisins.

Pierce marshmallow with a carved pointed stick, twist over an open campfire. You’ll rarely get perfect ones (unless your are very patient and quite obsessive), but even the charred ones are great, provided you get it to your mouth before it falls off the stick! . See ya…

@whatthefluther: lol. obviously i would have done that if that was one of the options available to me, but it wasn’t.. thanks anyways.
