These soft, and bouncy homemade marshmallows are perfect for recipes, s’mores, roasting over a campfire or simply just popping them into your mouth. So good! No corn syrup needed, no egg whites – just pure pantry ready ingredients.
As fall rapidly approaches, I thought it was a good time to resurrect these amazing Homemade Marshmallows and share them again.

There is no better time, or any excuse that should keep you from trying these on your own.
They are easy and delicious!
With the cooler weather moving in, especially in the evening, these Homemade Marshmallows are the perfect recipe to make!
These marshmallows are perfect for campfires, baking recipes, s’mores and so much more!
They are actually really easy to make and taste amazing by themselves, but lend so much flavor to whatever you decide to put them in.
Why make homemade marshmallows?
Well, for starters, they are SO much better than store-bought.
You know what you are putting in them, no additives or preservatives.
They have this incredible full bodied marshmallow flavor that a fluffiness with a melt in your mouth feel.
They are better in baking, and don’t even get me started on how incredible they are on s’mores. They melt so much better than a store bought marshmallow could.
Plus you can make them ANY size you want. From the tiniest morsel to a giant chunk!
How long do these marshmallows last?
The great part about homemade marshmallows is that they can last a very very long time. Like…forever?
There is nothing in these marshmallows that will go bad.
Just be sure to store them in an airtight container, allowing no moisture to get in and I recommend in a pantry, away from the sun.
How many marshmallows does this recipe make?
This is going to depend on a couple of factors.
First, the size you cut the marshmallows will determine how many you get.
Also, how thick you make them. This will depend largely on the size of the pan you use.
On average I get about 25-30 out of this recipe.
What equipment do I need to make homemade marshmallows?
You probably have most of what you need, right there in your kitchen. Basic supplies.
However, I will tell you that a stand mixer is probably the best item to use.
The reason is, you are working with a VERY hot substance and there is a lot of steam that comes into play.
Trying to use a hand mixer is going to become painful over time. A stand mixer just works better.
You can get a relatively inexpensive Stand Mixer on Amazon with all your needed attachments.
