But it took us three or four goes to get it nearly right. We don’t often have a fire – mostly use it to burn receipts and stuff we do not want to put in the paper recycling lest it get into nefarious hands – but with the snow and cold it was a nice change. For us it is also enough of a novelty to be a treat. The art is getting the marshmallow near enough the fire to melt it without burning it and removing it from the heat without it melting completely and dripping on the floor. A light brown caramelisation is acceptable.
