DIY Vegan Marshmallows

11 Feb


1 3/4 cups organic sugar
1 cup water
3/4 cup organic light corn syrup
1/4 cup organic powdered sugar
4 tbsp agar powder
1 tbsp organic vanilla


You will need to soak the agar powder in 1/2 cup cold water until it is completely absorbed, which can take about 10 minutes.

While the agar powder is soaking, bring the 1/2 cup water, 1 3/4 cups organic sugar and 3/4 cup organic light corn syrup to a boil in a saucepan. Stir it constantly over medium heat, taking care not to let it boil over.

Using your stand mixure or hand mixer, slowly combine your sugar mixture and agar. Beat it on high speed for approximately 10 minutes or until the mixture looks like fluffy egg whites.

Cover the entire bottom of the baking dish with powdered sugar. Then, pour the sugar-agar mixture into the pan.
Sprinkle the top of the sugar-agar mixture with the remaining powdered sugar.

Allow the marshmallows to sit so they firm up. Once they are firm, you can cut them into heart shapes using a cookie cutter or knife.

Keep them in an airtight container in your refrigerator until you have used them all.
