Chef Alexa Lemley’s gourmet marshmallows were never supposed to be sold. The thoughtful chef prepared these sweet, inventively flavored cubes as gifts for 240Sweet’s original catering clientele, but they quickly became a customer favorite.
Today, chef Lemley keeps up with demand by gathering quality local and organic ingredients to craft small batches of her inventively flavored gourmet marshmallows. She combines Michigan beet sugar, Ohio glucose, and Indiana cornstarch and whisks everything together into dense, fluffy cubes, which she then flavors with handmade vanilla extract.
She has developed a line of creative, standard flavors such as Hoosier strawberry, maple and brown sugar, and coffee chocolate chip. Additional flavors rotate in celebration of monthly events, including the Dirty Leprechaun for St. Patrick’s Day and Love Stinks! for Valentine’s Day. Each individual treat is sold in thoughtful, minimalistic packaging: a clear plastic bag tied with a ribbon. 240Sweet also provides online recipes for other sweet treats, including popcorn balls and salty s’mores, and it runs marshmallow-making classes where patrons can combine their own unique flavor combinations or make a life-size marshmallow snowman.
