Homemade Marshmallows?

I'd love to try making marshmallows like the gourmet varieties sold at W-S and other places. Does anyone have a good recipe?

    We tried several marshmallow recipes with our youth group and the link above produced the tastiest!

    Warning, they are so easy to make; very addictive. The kids were dusting with all sorts of creative powders, flakes and sprinkles.


    1. I too have wanted to try them!

      Go to I've had good luck there for other recipes. Let us know how they come out!

      1. I haven't tried them, but I ran across this recipe a few days ago:

        Looks pretty similar to the recipe HillJ found, with the exception of egg whites.

        1. My grandmother got into making her own marshmallows just a few years ago, and everybody clamors for them. One thing: Do not attempt when there is a lot of moisture in the air. They just don't solidify properly. Maybe this is a no-brainer for some people, but I was totally stunned by how much it affected them.

          But definitely find some good chocolate to dip them in:-)

          1. I had to stop making them because I would eat the entire pan in a day they are so good. I use toasted coconut, chocolate, powder sugar, regular sugar, sugar/cinnamon, chocolate jimmies, sprinkles... the list is endless.

            I have used the just plain in my homemade hot chocolate!
