I tinted the marshmallow pink using hibiscus-infused honey, which I thought was appropriate since hibiscus is a marshmallow cousin and a fellow member of the Malvaceae family. The color is subtle and it adds a hint of fruity hibiscus flavor to the final marshmallows, but it works! Butterfly pea flower would have given them a subtle blue tint.
As you might imagine, these taste quite different than sugary-sweet commercial Peeps. The marshmallow root + honey create a marshmallow with a soft, chewy texture and a subtly sweet “earthy” flavor. Personally, I love that these actually taste like “real” food. (Because they are!)
