How avoid mash mellows sticking to your cutlery

Posted by Fongolicious On 10:50

Do you find when you're cutting (either with scissors or a knife) into mash-mellows they leave this sticky mess on your knife or scissors? Even if you stick a fork into it, you know you're not getting your fork back clean. When sticking them on skewers and toasting them over the fire - you're hoping it melts off before you have to clean it off with your teeth.

Well relax! I've found the best way to avoid this is to dip or spray the knife/ scissors/ fork/ skewer with cooking oil (vegetable, canola, olive etc.)  before prodding these sweet squishy dumplings of sugar. Don't mess with icing sugar or hot water - just oil!
