Marsh Madness: Sixteen Food Blogs Square Off For Best Marshmallow

Posted by Eric Smith

Are you ready… for Marsh Madness?

No, that isn’t a typo. Starting today, we’re kicking off Marsh Madness with Serious Eats. It’s our version of March Madness, only we’re replacing basketballs with marshmallows .

We’ve created four brackets with sixteen super sweet bloggers, and each food blogger is crafting his or her own unique marshmallow. The recipes start with the original vanilla mallow recipe in Shauna Sever’s Marshmallow Madness, and then the sky is the limit.

At the end of the tournament, Shauna will select her favorite of the bunch, and we’ll award that food blogger with a Quirk Books cookbook library and $100 gift card to Williams-Sonoma.

We’ve got the full schedule and the entire bracket below. Check back regularly on Serious Eats for recaps on the marshmallows, bookmark the blogs and keep up with Marsh Madness on Twitter via #marshmadness.
