  • 21g (0.75 oz) of gelatin (3 packs if you buy the conventional stuff... there aren't perfect options, but  this pasture raised product seems a little better... if you are more adventurous than us, you could  try to make it
  • 1/2 Cup cold water
  • 340g of sugar (1.5 Cup)
  • 340g of honey (1 Cup)
  • ~1/2 Cup of water
  • 1/4 t salt
  • Dash of  homemade vanilla extract (1tsp maybe?) 
  • 1/4 Cup of organic corn starch
  • 1/4 Cup of powdered sugar



  1. Place the gelatin and 1/2 cup of COLD water in the stand mixer and allow to soak
  2. Add sugar, honey, remaining water and salt into a small heavy saucepan
  3. Heat sugar over medium-low heat and stir as needed to dissolve sugar  (Watch temp especially around 210 degrees and turn heat down as needed to avoid boiling over)
  4. Heat until 240 degrees and promptly remove from heat
  5. Turn the stand mixer on and whisk on med-high while slowly adding the syrup.  drizzle on the side of the bowl so the gelatin isn't heated up too quickly
  6. Once all of the syrup is incorporated, add vanilla and turn to high speed for 15 minutes (a bit longer if you want to make 'smores)
  7. Get a 9x13 (ish) glass pan and lightly coat with oil (spray oil is fine, or else just drizzle some oil and spread with your hands)
  8. Mix cornstarch and powdered sugar in a bowl and sprinkle using a sifter or mesh strainer over the pan until all sides are coated.  You may want to cover with a cookie sheet and then shake or twist the pan around to make sure all surfaces are coated well.  
  9. After 15 min of mixing, immediately scrape the marshmallow mixture into the prepared pan and spread out evenly
  10. Sprinkle more of the cornstarch mixture on the top until coated, reserving the rest for later.  
  11. Allow to rest for 4 hours or overnight
  12. Sprinkle cornstarch mixture on a cutting board and turn out marshmallows onto the cutting board
  13. Cut the marshmallows to the size desired and coat the newly cut sides with the cornstarch mixture 
  14. Yum

When you are making a 'Smore with these marshmallows:

  • They will melt quickly, so it is best to also use a torch to brown them up
  • Be sure to whip them a bit longer than 15 min to try and make harder marshmellows
