    I made these are part of my included swag in a recent Canadian BIF and they generated a lot of fanfare. I've decided to post my recipe for all to enjoy here.

    For those not interested in making their own, I'm always open to beer for marshmallow trades :)

    That is seriously one of the cooler ideas I've seen in a long time. Looks pretty involved, but I might have to give this a go. Thanks for the heads up!

    I usually hate marshmallows but these sound awesome.

    Holy smokes. I'm not sure my baking chops are adequate for this!

    I made these last night with Bourbon County Stout. Holy shit they are delicious. I was worried they would be too difficult, but it was a fairly easy process frankly. The fact that you don't cook 4 oz of the beer at all really lets the entire character of the beer shine through in the marshmallow. Fluffy, stout-ey, bourbony deliciousness!

    Awesome, I'm glad you liked it and that it turned out well. Picture looks great and amazing choice on the beer.

    I agree that it ends up being fairly easy once you get going, just looks intimidating at the outset.

    Thanks for posting and commenting on my blog - need to get some more beer related material up there soon.

    Seems intimidating at first, but it is really fairly easy to make. You won't go back to store bought once you have them - promise.

    One thing I was thinking about doing the next time is infusing the beer (via french press) to bring in even more flavor. Coconut is what keeps jumping to my mind. Just an idea!

    The key thing I'd say is to not use a crappy beer. The Bourbon County came through big time because it wasn't cooked. I imagine using a beer that's too hot or just has off flavors would come through equally as much.

    Having glanced through your blog (and bookmarking a few of the entries), it seems you are big on stouts. Do you think this recipe would work with a Belgian Quad like St. Bernadus 12? Unless you think stout is the only way to go, I may just have to try it. Awesome recipe idea.

    While we are big on stouts, our preferences tend to fall on the Belgian styles and IPA/DIPAs. Stouts just tend to work great with the food we recipes we have used so far.

    I would definitely try a quad or a dubble - anything that has a big presence which will shine through. This year we are thinking of trying some pumpkin varieties for a fall BIF we are participating in.

    Let me know what you try and how it turns out!
