You have always known that brown sugar and marshmallows make a great combination- think Halloween popcorn balls or Thanksgiving yams. But I recently learned of another surprising trick involving this dynamic duo. Turns out (according to the new issue of Real Simple magazine) that putting a couple marshmallows in the bag with the brown sugar in your pantry will keep it moist and crumbly, instead of turning into a big ol' solid brick of sugar that you have to take an icepick to, as it normally does.
As a small form of disclaimer, I only just put the mallows in my sugar bag last week, so I don't know how long this trick will actually work (after all, even marshmallows get stale and hard eventually), but what are you hanging on to that brown sugar for, anyway? Make a cake!
