*Real* Marshmallow Root Marshmallows

5 Stars 4 Stars 3 Stars 2 Stars 1 Star

5 from 1 review



1 1/2 c cold infusion of marshmallow root (instructions above)

3 T powdered gelatin

1 c local honey

1 T vanilla extract

pinch high-mineral salt

coconut oil (for oiling your pan and spatula)

34 T arrowroot powder (for dusting)


  1. Cut a piece of parchment paper (or a silicone baking mat) to fit the bottom of a 9″x13” baking dish. Rub the bottom of the pan with a bit of coconut oil to help the parchment stick in place, then lightly grease the parchment with coconut oil.
  2. In a large mixing bowl (or the bowl of stand mixer), combine 1 cup of marshmallow root infusion and powdered gelatin, stirring until the powder is fully moistened. Add vanilla and a pinch of salt and set aside to allow the gelatin time to bloom.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine 1/2 cup marshmallow root infusion with 1 cup honey and bring to a boil over medium-high heat; continue simmering until the honey mixture reaches 235-240F.
  4. Pour the hot honey mixture into the mixing bowl with the bloomed gelatin.
  5. Using an electric hand/stand mixer at medium-high speed, whip until the mixture stiffens and doubles in size. This may take 10-15 minutes. You’re looking for ribbons but not super stiff or you’ll have trouble smoothing it out in the pan.
  6. Using an oiled spatula, spoon the marshmallow mixture into the prepared pan., smoothing out the surface as you go.
  7. Let the pan of marshmallow set and dry at room temperature for 4-6 hours (or overnight).
  8. Prepare a small bowl filled with a few tablespoons of arrowroot powder.
  9. Lightly grease a sharp knife with coconut oil and cut marshmallows into squares. Use a paper towel saturated with a bit of coconut oil to wipe down your blade in between cuts.
  10. Toss marshmallow squares/shapes in arrowroot powder, tapping off any excess powder.
  11. Transfer to an airtight container and store at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to a 2 months.
