Homemade Marshmallows

These morsels are delicious.  But be warned the process may turn your kitchen into a gooey, powdery mess.


I’ve never been a huge fan of marshmallows.  S’mores yes.  Plain marshmallows no.  Summer when I was a kid was full of campfires at the cottage.  I’d sit around the campfire with marshmallows on sticks trying to get the perfect golden brown without burning them.  My cousin on the other hand enjoyed catching his on fire and blowing it out only after the outside was nicely charred.  But I have never been fond of plain marshmallows or marshmallow fluff.

These have me reconsidering my view on marshmallows only being good in s’more form.  Homemade marshmallows are amazing.  I realized this halfway through licking the bowl of fluff clean.


The final result is delicious.  They turned out very fluffy and very sweet.  The honey and vanilla give it a hint of flavor, but I wouldn’t instantly identify either the vanilla or honey in them.

I bet s’mores with these would taste awesome.  Well, I’m off to procure some graham crackers and chocolate.  Enjoy!
