Peanut Banana Caramel Bouchée


I wanted to take something very common and popular with the general public and put a modern twist on it. The marshmallow is recognized as an unpolished treat accessible to everyone, to through into a warm drink or put across a fire. I made the marshmallow into a sophisticated bouche with an intriguing shape that has inviting flavours.
