Instantly elevate your hot chocolate, s’mores, or campfire game with these homemade marshmallows! They are soft and fluffy, and perfectly sweet with just a hint of vanilla.
Marshmallows: just sugar, gelatin and little bit of magic.
Ok, fine. It’s science.
But the results are 100% magical.
These little pillows of delight should come with a warning: Addictive and too easy to make for your own good!
Who am I kidding, homemade marshmallows are essential to good health. How can you eat one and not be reminded of childhood and s’mores and campfires?
Little pillows of happiness.
And when you top some of my decadent hot chocolate with these little pillows of happiness?
The marshmallow melts into the creamy, rich chocolate and it’s so good….swoon.
The hard part about making marshmallows is cooking the sugar to the appropriate temperature. It’s the sugary half of an Italian meringue, so if you have Italian Meringue Buttercream on tap this marshmallow recipe will seem old hat.
But old hat never tasted so gooooood!
You will want a stand mixer because it is ridiculously dangerous to pour hot sugar syrup into a bowl while using a hand blender. Just don’t. Please. Sugar burns are THE WORST.
And with that little piece of advice…I leave you with your next homemade obsession! #sorrynotsorry
So Marshmallows are your jam? (Mine too)
