Barbara's Notes + Tips
Be careful not to burn the butter, as soon as it starts to turn brown, add the marshmallows and reduce heat.
Avoid old marshmallows, they will not melt as well.
You can use marshmallow fluff but the texture will be different.
You can use regular or mini marshmallows.
Freeze between a layer of parchment paper so they don't stick together.
