Homemade Honey Marshmallows
Coconut oil or parchment paper
Glass baking dish (9x9 or whatever you have!)
Standing mixer with whisk attachment
Sauce pan and whisk
Measuring cups and spoons
1/4 cup gelatin
1 cup of filtered water (you will be dividing this into two half cups)
1 cup of honey
1 tsp of vanilla extract
Grease glass pan with coconut oil or place parchment paper inside.
Place gelatin and 1/2 cup of water in mixer, mix for a few seconds on low to combine. Let sit for a few minutes to thicken.
While the gelatin thickens, place sauce pan on stovetop, mix the honey and 1/2 cup water together and bring to a boil.
Whisk and stir for about 8-10 minutes or until starts to thicken a little.
Place honey syrup into standing mixer and combine with gelatin. Whisk on high speed for about 12 minutes. Mixture should turn white and start to thicken and form a cream like consistency and soft peaks.
Add 1 tsp of vanilla extract for flavoring as the last step.
Place marshmallow cream into greased glass pan or baking dish and let it set (about 4-6 hours minimum). Do not refrigerate.
Once the marshmallows are set, feel free to cut into squares or any shape you desire! If you have nice cookie cutters this is a nice time to involve the kids to create fun marshmallow shapes!
Store in a dry, cool area of the home. You may also freeze them for longer storage - they freeze nicely!
