240 Sweet {Magnificent Marshmallows}

Every year, we find some really unique items for our brides and one of our favorites this year is hand-crafted organic marshmallows from 240sweet. This fun company creates gourmet marshmallows in tons of amazing flavors from salted caramel to vanilla lavender to chocolate chip to roasted pineapple!

Partners Alexa Lemley and Samantha Aulick hand-craft the artisan treats in Columbus, Indiana. Originally, they made marshmallows to give to their catering customers. Soon, people begin clamoring for more puffs and 240sweet was born.

They are perfect for hotel welcome bags along with a bag of hot cocoa mix and no one will have seen anything like them before! Trust me when I say they are seriously yummy!  Check out all the amazing flavors at 240sweet.

Here is a fun marshmallow recipe from their website:
  • Fleur de Sel S'mores

    Are you ready for the best s'more you will ever enjoy? We use Maldon sea salt and Chef Alexa's own caramel in the Salty Caramel Twist puff. The addition of dark chocolate and crunchy graham crackers makes an irresistable delight.

    6 puffs Salty Caramel Twist 240sweet Artisan Marshmallows
    6 miniature dark chocolate candy bars
    12 graham cracker cookies

    On a platter, place cookies upside down. Individually, place miniature candy bars on six
    of the cookies. Reserve remaining cookies to top s'mores.

    Using a skewer, roast puffs to toasting preferences. Place one roasted puff atop each candy bar and cookie stack. Place remaining cookies
    atop stacks and squish. Indulge immediately.

    Note: To make these s'mores in broiler, place half of cookes topped with candy bar and marshmallow under a hot broiler until puff is the desired shade of brown. Upon removal, immediately top stacks with remaining cookies.
