CHEF KAYLA’S HONEY SWEETENED MARSHMALLOWS:

I created a recipe to be a little more health conscious using only 3 ingredients; honey, gelatin, and water.  That’s it friends! I then rolled half in toasted unsweetened coconut and the other half in cocoa powder.  Of course the weather was not cooperating the day that  I created these so I pulled out the good ol’ torch and torched those marshmallows at the kitchen table. Hey! you gotta do what ya gotta do! I hope you enjoy these tasty marshmallows as much as my girls and I!

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp gelatin
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla, or flavoring of your choice
  • pinch of salt
  • toasted coconut
  • cocoa powder

Directions

  1. Lightly grease a 9×13 pan and then layer with parchment paper.  Lightly butter the parchment paper. (At this point, since I was making toasted coconut and cocoa marshmallows and I dusted cocoa powder over half the pan and sprinkled the coconut on the other half of the pan).
  2. Sprinkle the gelatin over 1/2 cup water  in the bowl of your mixer and let bloom. Set aside.
  3. In a small sauce pot pour the other 1/2 cup water, salt and 1 cup honey.  Cook over medium-low heat until the temperature comes to 240.  Do not stir during this process. Once it has reached the desired temperature take off the heat.
  4. Now very carefully, on low speed, slowly drizzle the honey syrup into the bowl with the gelatin/water mixture and beat. Once the mixture begins to fluff up, slowly increase the speed to medium-high and continue beating for about 10-12 minutes.  When it looks fluffy and cloud-like, add in the vanilla (or any other flavoring you prefer) and pour into the prepared pan.  Let it side for a minimum of 4 hours.
  5. Once it has completely set, I cut into about 1 inch cubes and roll into my desired garnishes.  I did half toasted coconut and half cocoa.  Then eat away and enjoy!
