Dolcezza, Etc. Marshmallows

This confectioner makes 16 flavors in additional to seasonal specialties. The eight basic flavors include Chocolate, Cinnamon Bun, Lemonade, Kahlua Marshmallows - DolcezzaPeppermint, Strawberry, Toasted Marshmallow, Tutti Frutti and Vanilla. There’s also a “Happy Hour” series with flavors like Margarita, Sambuca and Piña Colada, made with real liqueurs. We tried Cinnamon Bun, Cranberry (seasonal), Crème de Menthe, Kahlua and Toasted Marshmallow. While all varieties are offered in 1 inch cubes, a few are available in larger, 1-1/2 inch cubes.

The Kahlua is fabulous (shown in the photo at right), a pale beige color with a definite taste of coffee liqueur. The pale pink Cranberry has an element of berry tartness and is very good, though I’m not sure I could specify they were cranberry-flavored if I hadn’t seen the package. I loved the Crème de Menthe, a pale green with a little chocolate swirl, predominantly mint with just a tiny hint of chocolate. To me, the Cinnamon Bun is the least successful of the flavors I tried. The marshmallows, very good by themselves, are rolled in a cinnamon-sugar mixture that contains a jarring note of salt (people who like salted chocolate and other sweet-salty combinations may enjoy it). The Toasted Marshmallow flavor is a very pale beige, almost an off-white shade, with a very light caramel taste. The style is tender and delicate. Kahlua is a favorite.

Gateau Et Ganache Marshmallows

We tasted Blackberry and Chocolate marshmallows; for the fall season, Blackberry Marshmallowthe Blackberry have been replaced by Pumpkin. The Blackberry (shown in the photo at right) are roughly 1-1/2 inches by 1-3/8 inches by 1-1/8 inches in height. With their pretty pink-purple color, it was fun for friends to try to guess what these marshmallows would taste like. Nobody guessed they were blackberry, but everyone was able to discern a definite berry flavor. The Chocolate, which are just slightly smaller, are dipped halfway into dark chocolate. Their moderately chocolate-colored interior has a pleasant chocolate taste, with a nice extra note of chocolate flavor from that thin, dark chocolate half-covering. Tender and delicate style. The Chocolate are a favorite. Our editor, who did not get to taste them (sorry!) was nevertheless crazy about the Blackberry.
