DIY marshmallows are not hard to make, and they are just as tasty as the commercial counterpart. In my opinion, they are even better.

- Powdered Sugar - Beef gelatin - Cold water - Granulated sugar - Vanilla extract


Pour 1/2 cup of water in a large mixing bowl and mix in the gelatin. Let stand for 10-15 minutes.

Get started!

Combine the remaining 3/4 cup water, cane sugar, and salt in a saucepan.

 Stir well to dissolve all of the gelatin and add vanilla. Turn up speed to medium high and beat until fluffy.

What's next?


Pour the whole mixture into prepared pan.

The marshmallows will harden and you will be able to pull the whole big rectangle out of the pan.

I store them in the fridge for up to 3 days, in an airtight container or ziplock bag. I prefer a glass pan so they don’t get crushed.

How long will homemade marshmallows keep?

Use a very sharp knife or pizza cutter to cut your marshmallows in uniform size. A regular butter type knife will work in a pinch, but it may tear them up a bit.
