Back when I discovered the joys of Filipino chocolate (AKA Tsokolate), I immediately made plans to churn some Tsokolate Ice Cream as soon as the weather warmed up a bit. But when I finally got around to making said ice cream, I decided to also throw some peanuts and marshmallows into the mix as well for my own version of Rocky Road Ice Cream. Of course, I couldn't settle for just any marshmallow, so I went ahead and whipped up some homemade Ube Marshmallows!
Yes. Ube Marshmallows.
As crazy as that sounds, it's actually fairly easy to create a purple fluffy confection vaguely reminiscent in flavor to the Filipino Purple Yam thanks to some Ube-in-a-bottle I happened across at my Asian market.
