Step 1: Make the Raspberry Sauce

Add the raspberries, lemon juice and sugar to a storage container, then mash slightly. Cover and refrigerate until ready to use. No need for heat–sugar will macerate the berries well enough to turn them into a sauce.

Step 2: Toast the Marshmallows

Using a kitchen torch or a campfire, toast the marshmallows to desired doneness.
