- Marshmallow fluff 1 cup, melted
- Strawberries 16 fresh
So, while I was driving to pick my son up, I stumbled upon my favorite phone play list that I was obsessed with a few years ago. In a mood to relive the past, I played it and got all groovy while listening to Steven Tyler sing:
Pink it’s my new obsession
Pink it’s not even a question
Pink on the lips of your lover, ‘cause pink is the love you discover
Pink as the bing on your cherry
Pink ‘cause you are so very
Pink it’s the color of passion
‘cause today it just goes with the fashion
And, boy was I in a mood for some punk and all I could see was pink around me. So with the song echoing in to my ears for the better part of the evening, I was compelled to cook something pink. With no time to create anything fancy, I thought to create a quick ‘anytime of the year’ camping dish.
And boy, was I in luck to have a box full of fresh and ‘pink’ strawberries lying in my fridge. So I made a quick marshmallow fluff by melting about a cup of marshmallows over a double boiler and with water. The trick with melting marshmallow is to keep a tab on temperature and stir the ever so delicate marshmallows almost constantly to prevent them from burning.
In this recipe, this is the trickiest and most time consuming task as the rest of the work is a visual delight and an absolute fun to do. Just dip the toothpick mounted fresh berries in to this gooey white, mellow heaven and give a nice toasty look to the white cloud.
Manage the temperature of the burner well and you too will be singing Pink it’s my new obsession…..
Pierce the strawberries from the green side, until half way through in to tooth picks. Now dump the narrow side of the strawberry partially in to the marshmallow fluff one at a time and then toast them on a gas flame for a few seconds until it is lightly toasted on all sides. Continue with the remaining strawberries and marshmallow fluff. Serve and enjoy!
Be very careful while you toast the fluff over the gas stove as the marshmallow tends to burn immediately. You may have to monitor the heat and toast them over a very low flame. Alternatively, you may use hand burner to give the strawberries a nice and even brown coating.
