Sheryll Questa here... Please be sure to subscribe and share this video! Believe me, it helps me to stay motivated to keep doing more videos. Thanks. Now enough talk, let's get to these homemade marshmallows!
Homemade marshmallows are such a treat! Best of all, they are SO EASY!!! However, because they are loaded with sugar, I've passed on marshmallows for years. But now, OH BOY, the floodgates have been opened, and it's time to FINALLY have some fluffy, squishy, fat-free, dairy-free, sugar-free marshmallows.
This marshmallows recipe is sugar-free, but feel free to change it up. That's what I love about cooking, you can totally make it your own. I'm really looking forward to experimenting more with these homemade marshmallows. One word of caution, don't eat the whole batch in one sitting! Believe me, it's NOT a good idea lol! Let's just say excessive consumption can definitely cause some "...." you know what...lol. (People who use sugar subs know what I'm talking about lol!)
Ok nevertheless, here's the recipe to my Homemade Marshmallows - Sugar-Free:
Homemade Marshmallows Recipe (Sugar-Free)
2 cups honey (Honey Tree Imitation Honey - sugar-free)
1 tbsp vanilla
1/8 tsp stevia
1 cup water (divided)
3 packets gelatin
Confectioners sugar (Swerve-sugar free)
Follow the steps in the video. You'll want to add the Stevia to the syrup before it starts cooking. You'll also want to add the vanilla while the marshmallows are whipping in your stand mixer.
Using a stand mixer or hand mixer?
For this marshmallows recipe, I definitely think you'll need a stand mixer. Unless you've got arms of steel this will be a really tough task. Basically, the only helpful requirement for your marshmallows to come out right is for you to have an electric mixer.
I let these marshmallows whip a little too long. However, the good thing about that is that they set up SUPER quick. I'd advise whipping your marshmallows for about 10-15 minutes. I think I like mine go for like half an hour (yeah I don't know what I was thinking..lol).
Storing your Homemade Marshmallows
Now that you've put all of that work into preparing these marshmallows, you'll want to make sure you store them right. I stored mine in an airtight container with extra dusting powder. The next day they were still soft, fluffy and absolutely delish. My marshmallows stayed out on the counter, and they were fine at room temp.
Did you know?
Ancient Egyptians are believed to be the first to experience the joy that is eating the marshmallow. Marshmallows are actually called marshmallows because they come from the sweet sap of the 'Mallow' Plant. This type of plant typically grows in marshes and can grow from 2 to 4 feet tall.
Also, some believe that marshmallows can actually help a sore throat. I'll definitely have to remember that the next time I have a cold! Pretty neat huh!
