Looking for that perfect sweet treat this winter? Or maybe a Christmas present for that friend with a sweet tooth? The marshmallowists are a female duo called Smart and Simms. Through the art of conversation, one afternoon in a bar at West London, they both came up with this idea for gourmet marshmallows.

The only question remains: does it remind you of the adventures of Harry Potter or the scary ending of The Shining?
