    I guess I bought the wrong marshmallows. They are puffy and thick I am unable to flatten no matter what I tried. What and where do you purchase flat marshmallows?

    I found flat sheets!!

      Yay! I’m so glad that you found some that will work. The ones that I used are made by Kraft. They are called S’moreMallows. In a pinch, I have also used the giant marshmallows and a rolling pin.
