This recipe is a slight modification of these Super Fruit Marshmallows I made back in January. The main difference being that with these strawberry marshmallows I used a strawberry puree in place of the fruit juice. Of course, I also added brownie batter bites… Let’s make the brownie batter bites first because I know you want to make them right now!

Roll each piece into a small ball. Freeze until ready to use. You can also eat one at this point because they are delicious and slightly addictive…

Now on to the strawberry marshmallows! In a large pot (large because this boils over super easily) place the sugar, 3/4c. strawberry puree, and corn syrup.
