I’m just a little in love with marshmallows – They are good with pretty much everything…. S’mores, Hot chocolate, Cake, Donuts, ice cream and of course by themselves. I honestly can’t think of much I WOULDN’T enjoy with marshmallows. And HOMEMADE marshmallows are EASY and OH so good!
Like SERIOUSLY so good! My husband doesn’t love sweets (I know, RIGHT???) but even he loved these! I barely had enough left for pictures after he got to them… I almost had to make a new batch…. darn it!
In this “homemade Peeps” video I use this same recipe, but I let it cool and I pipe it into peep shape, you can just pour it into a 9×13 pan for this recipe. BUT making it is the same.
So I recently bought a Cake Pop Roller and am in LOVE with it! It seriously rolls everything… THEN she told me it it also cut’s marshmallows.. WHAT! I love homemade marshmallows, but cutting them is SUCH a pain, spraying the knife, cutting, cleaning, spraying it again, cutting…. SUCH a pain! So I HAD to try it out
I actually filmed the very first time I tried it and I wasn’t sure if it would really work, IT’S AMAZING! Seriously I am SOOOO going to be making marshmallows WAY more often than I used to because of this!
homemade marshmallows are easy to make and totally worth it.
- 3 Tbsp unflavored gelatin powder
- 1/3 C cold water
- 3 C granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 C water
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/3 C cornstarch
- 1/3 C powdered sugar
- Soak the gelatin in the 1/3 of a cup of cold water in a small bowl and set aside to swell for 10 minutes.
- In a large saucepan dissolve the sugar in the 1 1/2 C of water over low heat, stirring constantly.
- Add the swollen gelatin and dissolve.
- Raise the temperature and bring to a boil.
- Boil steadily, but not vigorously, for 15 minutes without stirring.
Remove from the heat and pour into a bowl, or mixer and add the vanilla and beat the mixture until very thick and white.
- Spray a 9x13 pan (or 9x9 inch pan for taller marshmallows) with bakers joy and pour the mixture into the pan
let set completely - about 2 hours
- Cut into squares and dust with a mixture of cornstarch and icing sugar.
Tip- I use my Cake Pop Roller to cut the marshmallow's quickly, evenly and easily!
