How to make homemade marshmallows

Making, that's a sticky, sticky job. Are you up for it? We've got 8 easy steps for you to follow to make some pretty fantastic home-made marshmallows!

We'll warn you now...don't try and scrape the bowl with your fingers before you're entirely done pouring your marshmallows in the pan. This isn't your average batter that can easily be licked clean. The white fluffy mixture may look innocent enough but it's like silly string on steroids if you happen to touch it. Don't do that.

There are two recipes that you can follow - one using egg whites and one that doesn't. We prefer the recipe without the egg whites. If you have an egg allergy in your home, you'll want to use the recipe below.

Here is what you'll need:

Stand mixer, candy thermometer, water, gelatin, corn syrup, sugar, salt, vanilla (or other flavoring if you want to try flavored marshmallows)

Here is a basic egg-free marshmallow recipe:

2 1/2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin

1/2 cup cold water

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

1 cup light corn syrup

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup water

1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract

powdered sugar for dusting


Step 1: Combine granulated sugar, corn syrup, salt, and 1/2 cup of water in a heavy saucepan and stir; place over low heat and cover 5 minutes. Uncover and heat to 240°

Step 3: Add the boiled mixture from the saucepan to the mixture in the stand mixer on low speed to start. Then increase to high speed.

Step 4: Beat on high speed until the mixture is thickened and white; and has almost tripled in volume, about 10-12 minutes. Add vanilla or other flavoring just to incorporate.

We topped our marshmallow with chocolate chips...this adds a fun, sweet and crunchy texture.
