Move over box of chocolates, there’s a new sweet treat in town. Over Valentine’s Day weekend, my boyfriend surprised me with a box of unique yet delicious treats all the way from San Francisco. One of Chef Yugit Pura’s Tout Sweet Patisserie selects: Marshmallow Four Pack Box (48 pieces). Light and fluffy, and not overly sweet, just the way I like it!
The box came with four flavors:
- Tahitian Vanilla Bean Marshmallows, (12 pieces)
- Tesla Passion Fruit-Yuzu Marshmallows, (12 pieces)
- Toasted-Tipsy Coconut Marshmallows, (12 pieces)
- Raspberry-Lime Marshmallows, (12 pieces)
Can you guess which one was my favorite? Toasted-Tipsy Coconut for the win! I never would have thought I’d be a fan of marshmallows unless in a s’more. I’ve actually been meaning to run to the store and grab some graham crackers and dark chocolate to see how these would be in a classic undone campfire treat!
What I love most about these is that the sweetness is subtle and the texture is super delicate and fluffy. Also, no mystery ingredients — you heard me; no random colors or this and that, everything you’d understand.
The base of these marshmallows include: sugar, water, egg whites, glucose and gelatin. Depending on the flavor, you’ll also find simple fruit purees, lemon/lime juice and even an added bonus of rum and coconut butter (in the Toasted Tipsy Coconut Marshmallows). All of these marshmallows are also gluten free & dairy free!
If you’re looking to impress your significant other, friends or family with something other than the typical box of chocolate, give these a try! For more delectable ideas (like cookies, jams or macrons), check out what other ‘confection perfections’ Tout Sweet has to offer.
