Marshmallows are an ancient treat, first enjoyed by Egyptians about 4,000 years ago. In America, marshmallows have been consumed since the 1900s. At that time, the sweet was made with the sap of the marshmallow tree. Modern day marshmallows dont derive from the actual plant but have retained the name. Marshmallows are very popular and enjoyed year round: in the wintertime, atop steaming hot cocoas, and in the summertime, toasted over an open fire.
