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? 😀
