Roasting Marshmallows with a Torch

While cleaning out my old jewelry-making supplies, and I found my torch and some butane canisters. I was trying to figure out how to safely dispose of them when I got an idea. It turns out my little torch makes great roasted marshmallows!

Okay, normally they don’t catch on fire like this, but it was impossible to carefully roast a marshmallow left-handed while taking photos with my right! It was kind of a “pat your head and rub your stomach” situation.

If you don’t like burnt marshmallows, just keep the flame a few inches away from the marshmallow (as pictured), but make sure to constantly rotate the marshmallow. That way you’ll lightly brown all its surfaces instead of lighting it on fire.

I came across this Creme Brûlée Eggs recipe today, and I have to try it next!

      Now I have to keep it so I can roast marshmallows on the fly! ;)

      You know, every time I’ve eaten creme brulee I’ve wished it was different somehow—more chocolatey! Something like a molten chocolate cake + creme brulee combo would be perfect. I’m such such a recipe exists somewhere on the internets. I need to look for it!

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
