It only took me close to a year to attempt making homemade marshmallows again, but there is no better motivation than being thrust onto the food allergy playground!
I first attempted to make corn-free, gelatin-free marshmallows last January (you can read that post here), but there were egg whites in it. I also used xanthan gum, not realizing that xanthan gum is usually derived from corn (goes to show you how much I knew back then!). Now that my youngest son is allergic to eggs and I am newly allergic to corn, we found ourselves suddenly without this very important component to hot cocoa! Well, we can’t have that now, can we?
Luckily for me, someone else had already figured it out, so I only needed to make one small tweak (love it when this happens). I found the recipe for Fluffy Vanilla Marshmallows over at The Kitchn. Emma even addressed the corn syrup issue for me by offering a recipe for homemade cane sugar syrup, to which I changed up slightly by using Beet Sugar instead (I also used my own homemade powdered sugar).
I will share a few photos on how I went about making the marshmallows and you can get the full recipe here: Fluffy Vanilla Marshmallows.
First, I made the Beet Sugar Syrup by simply following this recipe: Cane Sugar Syrup, but subbing beet sugar for the cane sugar.
Note: this syrup will harden somewhat so I don’t plan on making a big batch to store, I will just make it as needed.
Now, we can have corn-free, dairy-free, dye-free, egg-free hot cocoa!
You can even make shaped marshmallows!
Do you have any idea how much I hate goldfish?
