MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 6, 2013

This was one of my families favorite. I found it easier to put the marshmallow balls in freezer for a little while it made them easier to handle. Plus with the marshmallow cool it didn't sick to your hands as much. If it helps wear rubber glove sprayed with cooking spray.
