Doing research for another print writing assignment, I came across the Culinary Institute of America's recipe for marshmallow chicks (which they call peepz). Here's the link. Two things that concern me about the recipe -- getting the sugar mixture to exactly 311 degrees and the fact that the completed chicks stay fresh two weeks. I like mine stale!
For those of you who like that sort of thing, a You Tube video is provided.
