Homemade Teddy Bear Chocolate Marshmallows ( 'ェ' )

I have seen comments about how homemade marshmallows taste so much better than store-bought one, I totally agree after I made some myself, the homemade ones are so much softer, more fluffy, more airy and less sweet! These yummy springy pillow-soft marshmallows are very easy to make, the longer you whisk the mixture the more fluffy the marshmallows are, a stand mixer really helps : )
