Marshmallow torch

torched marshmallows

The December photo scavenger hunt had a “marshmallow world” category. This is a little bit… odd… but it was fun.


  1. OK, we’re not “over the top” with this marshmallow roast – or are we?!!!!
    Glad to see all the “gear” she’s wearing :))

    • Yeah, a little over the top, but the marshmallows had gone stale, so it was burn ’em or throw ’em away. 😉 We practiced with the torch turned off, and then used very controlled conditions and heavy protective gear. There is a dead man’s switch on the propane as well (for those who do not know, that means the second she flinches, the flame goes out – it’s a very safe set-up).

  2. I never doubted the safety, you’re the best safety guy I know!! Definitely an original roasting method, tho. Better use of the torch than burning weeds…. !!

  3. Also better than using the torch to melt snow for caves and fortresses – I hear it tends to burn the grass…

    Wow thats one way to toast a marshmallow! Ok Kids don’t try this at home! I bet you can cook a mean hamburger with that thing…..

  5. Was this photo setup just for the scavenger hunt?

  6. John – Yes, just for the hunt. I had some trouble getting the camera to do what I wanted it to do… the point-and-shoot takes a long time to focus in anything less than ideal conditions, so it was a bit of a challenge to get the shot.

  7. Extreme marshmallow toast or just extreme 🙂 ?

  8. and you can use a chainsaw to cut its :p
