Forget the PSL, this fall is all about the PSM — pumpkin spice marshmallows

I’m not one to jump on the pumpkin spice bandwagon, particularly when it comes to the now famous latte. But when tasked with creating a seasonal recipe for my sister’s fundraising project, pumpkin spice seemed an appropriate theme. And marshmallows seemed the appropriate vehicle. I’ve written before about my disdain for store-bought marshmallows and my love for homemade ones.
