Peppermint Marshmallows

Time for a bit of honesty. The photographed marshmallows are the product of my second attempt. The first batch ended up in the trash and I had a moment of defeat. I tried switching up my recipe to make them vegan-friendly, but let me tell you, my method was a disaster! I’m sure there is a way to swap out gelatin successfully, but I’m still working on perfecting my technique. In the meantime, I’ve gone back to my traditional recipe with a small seasonal twist.

By swapping out the vanilla extract for peppermint, you can enjoy a batch of holiday marshmallows! I’m a chocolate lover so deciding to add dark chocolate to the mix wasn’t a question. I love adding a marshmallow to my mug of hot chocolate, but they are also a sweet indulgence to enjoy on their own.

  • 1/4 tsp salt

Directions:

  • Pour the gelatin and 1/2 C cold water into your stand mixture. Set aside.

  • Remove sugar mixture from heat and slowly mix into the gelatin mixture. Increase to a high mixing speed for 15 minutes or until a thick consistency is reached.
  • Pour marshmallow mixture into a pan lined with parchment paper and dusted with powdered sugar.
  • Let sit overnight, then cut into squares, dip in dark chocolate and set aside for one hour.
  • Store in an airtight container.

Sneak a few more greens into your day with these veggie cracker bites! Head over to the blog for the recipe. (Link in profile) Soaking in the beauty of the snow covered trails this morning. The best part of work trips? Staying at unique hotels. This particular room came with a record player and a lot of design inspiration! @oxbowhotel Right after we returned to home from Florida Ian left on a work trip. You would think after a week together we wouldn’t mind some time apart, but I’ve been counting down the minutes until his plane lands and I can wrap him up in my arms.
