Making Marshmallows

Homemade marshmallows?  Oh, yes!

I LOVE marshmallows (we’re even having s’mores as our wedding favors!), and lately I’ve been hearing more and more about gourmet marshmallow shops popping up like cupcakeries did a few years back.

So when I ran across this recipe for marshmallows, I knew I had to try it!!

Overall, I would say marshmallows are pretty easy provided you have a stand mixer.  In the first six minutes of beating on high, the fluff grew so much I was afraid it would poof out of the mixer!

The hardest part is by far the cutting and sugar dusting — I had marshmallow all over my shirt and hands and counter…. I just love messy cooking!!  My advice?  Work on a BIG (very easy to clean) surface covered in wax paper and powdered sugar!

And what’s a good marshmallow without some chocolate and crushed candy canes?  These little treat bags are FH’s co-workers.  Lucky little guns, aren’t they?

I think this is by far my new favorite snack.  Easy to make, easy to eat, and YUM YUM YUM!

Can’t wait to try these in some homemade hot cocoa!

  1. Just saw you on Tip Junkie. I have always wanted to make them, so it's nice to hear they were "easy". I think I might have to do this next week with the kids. They would be in awe! Love the idea of smores for your wedding!
