Eggnog Marshmallows

Eggnog Marshmallows have been on my to-make list for a while, and I finally got around to making them this season!  And they are so good and really do taste quite a bit like eggnog! It also gave me an excuse to try the new Further Foods Premium Gelatin Powder. (Which is the BEST gelatin powder! Expertly sourced from the highest quality grass fed, pasture raised beef hide gelatin!) I love how easy they are to make. The hands-on time is about 15 to 20 minutes, then you set them aside for eight hours or overnight. That’s it!

These marshmallows are great to just snack on by themselves and delicious in a mug of homemade hot chocolate! Package up a few and share the Christmas cheer with your loved ones – they make a perfect homemade Christmas gift! Enjoy the recipe!

Recipe type: Healthy Snack, Dessert
Serves: 15-20 marshmallows
Ingredients
  • 1 cup water divided
  • 30 grams Further Foods Premium Gelatin Powder
  • 1 cup Sugar 2.0 maple syrup(can also use honey)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Eggnog spice mixture (1/4 tsp each of ginger, Cured Nutrition Cinnamon & Honey and nutmeg)
  • ⅓ cup arrowroot powder, ¼ tsp Cured Nutrition Cinnamon & Honey combined use for dusting the finished marshmallows (optional – you can leave the marshmallows plain if desired)
Instructions
  1. Line a 9X13 pan both ways with parchment paper(makes it easier to remove the marshmallows from the pan. Set aside.
  2. Place gelatin powder and ½ cup water in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to combine then let sit.
  3. In a medium saucepan, add other ½ cup water, maple syrup or honey and salt.
  4. Heat over medium to medium-high heat, bringing to a boil.
  5. Using a candy thermometer, let the mixture boil until it reaches 240 degrees or soft ball stage. Remove from heat.
  6. Using either a hand mixer or a stand mixer with the whisk attachment, turn it on low at first, breaking up the gelatin.
  7. Very slowly pour the syrup mixture into the gelatin mixture, while slowly turning up the speed on your mixer to high.
  8. Add the vanilla extract and spices and allow mixture to whip on high for 5-10 minutes until a thick marshmallow whipped cream is produced.
  9. Transfer the marshmallow cream to your prepared pan and smooth down with the back of your spoon.
  10. If using a coating, sprinkle on top of the marshmallows and pat down.You can also use a piece of parchment paper on top to smooth out the marshmallow, and leave it on top to cover it while it is setting.
  11. Leave your marshmallows out to set for 6-8 hours or overnight.(Note: Do not cover or place marshmallows in the fridge since moisture will cause them to dissolve.)
  12. Using a knife, cut marshmallows into long strips, and then into squares. Dust marshmallows, on all sides, in your powder of choice, or leave plain.
  13. Store marshmallows up to a week on your countertop in a sealed container

  1. Most festive marshmallows ever! So fun. I’m not an eggnog gal since I don’t do booze of any kind, but I appreciate the Christmas vibe here 🙂

    • Thank you Liz! I appreciate that! Lots of fun holiday nogs out there these days minus the alcohol! I’m going to try the almond nog from Trader Joe’s – it sounds interesting!
