It seems that everyone is making marshmallows at them moment. Sarah Wilson has a version she calls sugar free because they use rice malt syrup as the sweetener and Quirky uses honey in her recipe.

I prefer to think of sweets as sometimes foods and make them as nature intended… with pure, refined sugar cane juice, aka sugar.  Hehe, yes I’m being a little tongue in cheek here, but there are some things you will never be able to make into a health food. Marshmallow falls into that category for me.

So if we’re not eating this for the good of our health why not make them taste super delicious? That’s where the jelly crystals come into the recipe. I’m sure most kids love jelly. Now their favourite flavour can be made into a marshmallow. The recipe is so simple you can even get the kids to help.

My tips for the perfect flavoured marshmallow are very simple;

  1. Make sure the sugar and gelatin are completely dissolved.
  2. Cool the mixture to 50 degrees!!!
  3. Refrigerate immediately so the gelatine doesn’t separate.
  4. Roll in coconut if the weather is humid or damp.

    These look awesome, I have never made marshmallow but love them… Totally with you on ‘occasional’ foods, I wish people would stop killing the joy of them, their indulgence is part of their appeal, take away the indulgence and you take away that part of their appeal.

    How fun! I have never really considered how marshmallows can be homemade or flavored. These would be so fun to make for an Easter spread. Thank you for sharing! Luci’s Morsels | fashion. food. frivolity.

    These are so beautiful. I remember when I was just like 4 years old my grandma showed me how to make marshmallows from strawberry jello. I was so excited about it I have never forgotten.

    1. Julie says:

      It was my nana who showed me, I had forgotten all about it until I saw some vanilla marshmallow!

    I totally agree that sweets should be sometimes foods and these look like a great indulgence! At the end of the day calories from sugars still end up on your waistline no matter what form they came in. We might as well enjoy them!
