• These look yummy Susan! I wonder if I could make them. I can certainly give it a go!

    My wife’s a vegetarian, so I assume I could substitute gelatin with a vegetarian alternative without affecting things?

  • Jacqueline Gum

    OMG!!! These look wonderful…mouth watering. And what a unique gift for an Easter hostess!!!

    • The are SOOO good Jacquie. They really do make great gifts. Many of my friends and neighbors are wondering when I will make them again… 😀

  • Would LOVE some of those! Especially the chocolate-covered one! I really love the texture of homemade marshmallows.

    • The chocolate covered ones are awesome and disappeared pretty darn fast Doreen. The next time you visit we’ll have to make sure I have some on hand. 😀

  • Jeri Walker-Bickett

    I am definitely curious to see how these wonderfully yummy looking marshmallows compare to store bought ones.

    • They are amazing, and are in no way the same as store bought Jeri. Do you think you’ll give a whirl?

  • Jon Jefferson

    I made something similar when I was in culinary school. During my pastries class we made a variation on ‘smores and part of it was the fresh made marshmellows. The flavor is so much better than anything you can buy.

    • Indeed it is Jon. It’s something you never forget once you have had them. Have you made any lately?

  • Karena

    These marshmallows are AMAZING…. I can never eat a store bought one again! I have always wanted to make these, but have always been too intimidated….. Not anymore! Thanks for the marshmallow lesson! Hope you’ll have a flavored marshmallow recipe soon!

    • Hi there my friend. it was blast having in the kitchen to make these delectable clouds. I very much look forward to your next visit when we try bread and other items that are on my list. :-)))

  • Susan, my husband is so grateful that I came across your website. So many AMAZING recipes!! Can’t wait to try this one!

    • LOL, That is way cool, and I too am very happy you found me. Have fun with this recipe and let me know what your husband thinks when you do. 🙂

  • Catarina Alexon

    Wow, Susan. Have personally never even contemplated making marshmallows myself. What a good idea. Will have to try it out!

    • They are fun and oh so good to make too Catarina. The best part is these homemade marshmallows will not last very long, you can count on that. 🙂

  • Woo very interesting indeed

  • Terrific! Thank you for doing the homework of finding the best recipe for me. I have been thinking about doing some for along time. I think I better wait on this for awhile, so I book marked the page.

    When I was a growing up this lady, she had 5 kids and they had a dairy farm, so the whole family were big eaters. We would go to their house and usually around Christmas she would make green and pink marshmallows. They had a huge farm kitchen table, probably could seat 12 people with no problem. So we would be there and she would have the whole table covered with cookie sheets of marshmallows. You could have as many as you wanted, they were so yummy and you are right they taste nothing like the store bought. That is why I think I should wait before I give this a try!.


    • Hi Mary, You’re so welcome. It was fun, especially for the tasters… LOL. I bet that was a great time for everyone, and yes, I can see why you might want to wait. 🙂

  • Debra Yearwood

    This looks so good. I didn’t know you could make these yourself. My daughter will be enthralled. 🙂

    • Hi Debra, I so loved these and os will you and your daughter… 🙂 Now I’m off to make a homemade graham cracker to got with it. :-)))

  • Susan -.- I’m not even going to try! I’m not a big marshmallow fan anyway so I’d rather try one of your other yummy recipes.

    • LOL, I do understand Jeanette. Don’t rule these babies out the are SO different form the marshmallows you have before. 😀

  • Hi Tim, I know you would have fun with this. I don’t think it would be an issue. The gelatin I used was in fact was vegan. :-). Please let me know how it goes when you do. 🙂

  • Erika Mobeyk

    This is the first time I see a recipe for marshmallow ,this looks much better than the ones in stores 🙂 Thank you Susan

    • They are so much fun to make to Erika. I am always a hero when I take around the neighborhood to share. 🙂

  • crystal Ross

    This looks like a dose of heaven! Thanks for sharing! =)

    • Hi Crystal. That is a great phrase to describe them. They are heavenly little clouds of joy. 🙂

  • Hi Susan, I have to admit even though I don’t like marshmallows, they do look good.

    • I think these might change your mind Monna. They don’t even compare with store bought. Give them a try.

  • Cheryl Therrien

    I loved those marshmallows I had when I visited. Combine them with chocolate and you’ve got a little bit of heaven!

    • They were pretty awesome if I don’t say so myself Cheryl, especially with the homemade hot cocoa mix… YUM!

  • Donna Janke

    My mother used to make homemade marshmallows and we loved them. I’ve tried her recipe many times and they’ve never turned out quite the same. I always meant to make them once with her so I could see if I was missing some trick, but that never happened. Maybe I’ll have to try your recipe – it is just a little bit different than my mother’s.

    • Oh Donna, Then you must give these a try. I know your Mom would approve. 🙂

  • Lorraine Marie Reguly

    I have never heard of homemade marshmallows before! I bet these are good roasted over a fire, too. 😉

  • HomeJobsbyMOM

    To be honest I didn’t even know you could make a homemade marshmallows. Never crossed my mind. S’mores with those have to be extra good!

    • Who knew… LOL. I am working on a homemade graham cracker to do just that. I’ll keep you posted. 🙂

  • Rebecca Thompson

    I can’t say I have ever had home made marshmallows. It has only recently been since my son started asking for marshmallows that I even tried the bought variety. He would probably love these.

    • these are to die for Rebecca. Give them a whirl and he will never want store bought ever again. 🙂

  • my kids will think I am a superhero if I dare try this, and I think I will. Thanks Sue.

    • Oh indeed they will. You may become the best dad ever with these marshmallows Welli. 🙂

  • Jason Butler

    Seems like an easy recipe. Have you ever thought of writing a cookbook?

    • It is an easy recipe Jason. Give a whirl. As a matter of fact I have and Jeri and I are in the process of determining what we need and the editing of it. 🙂

  • @Tim Bonner I was just going to mention that agar-agar can be substituted to make veggie marshmallows! I LOVE the stuff and found it hard as a dedicated vegetarian to find a recipe, but I’m sure Susan’s recipe will be fine using agar-agar.

    Yum! Thanks Susan! I added you on Twitter so I can read more deliciousness – hopefully connect there sometime.

    Selina @ MightyTravels

    • As you said Selina, agar-agar should work very well. I do love my homemade marshmallows anyway your cut it. I will connect when time permits. Let the good recipes roll. 😀

  • Balln Chainz
