What makes a marshmallow to dissolve?
Question Date: 2007-01-26
Answer 1:

I found the answer to your question by trying to dissolve a marshmallow. I found that because it is made of sugar and jelly, water and milk can dissolve it, but only if you heat them. Put half of a cup of water or milk in a small container, add one marshmallow and heat it slowly by stirring it. You will get a nice marshmallow flavor drink. But be careful, you can not drink it until it cools down!
