7 Unique Ways to Enjoy Marshmallows
Marshmallows are a beloved sweet treat that can add an extra touch of sweetness to any dessert recipe. From vegan marshmallows to fluffernutter sandwich, marshmallows are versatile and delicious. In this blog post, we'll share 7 unique ways to enjoy marshmallows and inspire you to incorporate them into your baking and dessert creations.
- Dehydrated Marshmallows
Dehydrated marshmallows are a great topping or addition to various desserts and treats. You can use them as an ice cream topping, mix them into oatmeal or yogurt, or make a fluffernutter sandwich with them.
- Vegan Marshmallows
Vegan marshmallows are a great alternative for those following a plant-based diet or avoiding gelatin. They are made with ingredients like agar agar, brown rice syrup, and cornstarch and can be used in the same way as regular marshmallows.
- Fluffernutter Sandwich
The fluffernutter sandwich is a classic American sandwich made with peanut butter and marshmallow fluff, typically served on white bread or toast. You can get creative with this recipe by substituting your favorite nut butter or jam for the peanut butter.
- Campfire Vanilla Marshmallows
These campfire vanilla marshmallows are a delicious and easy treat to make at home. They take about 45 minutes from start to finish and are perfect for roasting over a fire or adding to s'mores.
Ingredients: 3 cups granulated sugar 1 cup corn syrup 1 cup cold water 1/4 cup powdered gelatin 1 tsp vanilla extract
In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, corn syrup, and cold water. Mix well until everything is combined.
Slowly add in the powdered gelatin while continuing to stir until the mixture is smooth and no lumps remain (about 2 minutes).
Pour the mixture into an 8"x8" baking pan sprayed with nonstick spray or covered with parchment paper (or greased and floured). The mixture should be about 1/2 inch thick when spread out evenly across the bottom of the pan (it will thicken more as it cooks).
Bake at 300°F for 40-45 minutes until the center feels firm when pressed lightly. Turn off the oven and let the marshmallows cool completely before cutting into squares or bars using a sharp knife dipped in hot water between each slice/cut.
- Mini S'more Pies
These mini s'more pies are a delicious and fun twist on the classic s'more. You'll need marshmallow fluff, chocolate sauce, and mini pie crusts to make them.
Ingredients: 1 cup marshmallow fluff 1/2 cup chocolate sauce 12 mini pie crusts
Preheat your oven to 350°F.
Spread a spoonful of marshmallow fluff onto each mini pie crust.
Drizzle the chocolate sauce over the marshmallow fluff.
Bake for 10-12 minutes until the crust is golden brown and the marshmallow fluff is melted.
Let the pies cool before serving.
Classic S'mores with a Twist
S'mores are a classic campfire dessert that are always a hit, but you can get creative with them by adding different toppings like chocolate chips or coconut. You can also try substituting different types of cookies and graham crackers for variety.
