Gilbert confectioner Tricia Arce takes us to Marshmallow Heaven.

Summertime calls for swimming under the sun and making s’mores under the stars. Hold the packages of processed marshmallows and make your own with Marshmallow Heaven (Skyhorse Publishing, $16.99), Valley confectioner Tricia M. Arce’s ode to egg whites, sugar and gelatin. The cookbook, an outgrowth of Arce’s Toasted Mallow s’mores café and marshmallow boutique in Gilbert (, includes recipes for simple mallows (vanilla bean, chocolate, strawberry) and advanced treats (Mexican hot chocolate marshmallows, vanilla mallow pies, marshmallow whip). Sticky fingers are inevitable, but delightfully lickable. Give in to your summer camp nostalgia and eat like a kid again.
