Fluffy question

When you make LCMs or Rice Bubble Treats do you pick out the white marshmallows (or buy a white only pack that I have not yet found) or do you use the pink and white ones?

I was looking for a recipe to make them today and I found more than one review saying that using pink marshmallows made them look revolting blink.gif .

The batch I just made looks slightly pink, but has hundreds and thousands on top, I think they look and taste yummy, but since these are for a christmas party I wondered what others do.

Even if everyone says revolting, my pink LCMs are going. I hate cooking for take-a-plate things.

At our house I pick out the pink ones and use those for treats or roasting on the fire.

I grew up eating the home made version in Canada and we never, ever had pink marshmallows so they look too weird to me.



Options for your LCM's
mini M&M's on top,  
Melt 2-3 tablespoons of peanut butter through with the marshmallows - then add some choc chips at the end

Rice Bubble Bars

I used this one, which is the most basic recipe and just sprinkle the hundreds and thousands on before it sets.

In a related question, does coconut ice have to be pink?

No, it has to be pink and white. Always pink and white!

Depends on my mood  and time and/or whether I can recruit the kids to do it. Sometimes its just white, others its mixed.

has anyone tried making these into shapes? Can you make a thinnish slab and cut them with cookie cutters?

Also on a side note, what does LCM stand for?!

Yep, Aldi is the only place I've found bags of white-only marshmallows. Having said that, it's actually not too hard to make your own.

Yes you can, but they need to be fully set and I have found having the cutters hot so it melts the marshmallow helps.

I've also wondered about LCM before and google tends to say the official Kellogs line is nothing, it was made up during a market research group.
