I'm sure everyone in school is working or already worked on this exercise. The aim of this is to see if we are able to communicate effectively - not verbally - but through writing. So after you take my step-by-step guide I would appreciate it if you could tell me below if you were able to make marshmallow taffy successfully and what you think my instructions are missing. Are they concise, thorough, etc?
*We all know a marshmallow is shaped like a cylinder, and we know that a cylinder is formed by a rectangle sandwiched by two spherical surfaces.
1) Place one of your thumbs on the bottom spherical surface and one of your index fingers on the top spherical surface.
2) Then, place the other thumb and index finger on different ends, each 180 degrees apart from each other on the rectangular part of the marshmallow.
3) Now, with these four fingers, begin to smash and sandwich the marshmallow until it becomes like chewed gum.
4) Now hold the deformed marshmallow and use one hand to stretch a part of the marshmallow away from the hand that is currently holding the other half.
5) Finally, let your hands switch roles. The hand that was grabbing will now stretch, and the hand that was stretching will now grab. Repeat steps four and five until the marshmallow becomes sticky and smooth-looking, and you've got marshmallow taffy!
