Ever since discovering the goodness of grass-fed, kosher gelatin, I’ve been on a little bit of a kick. Which means I add it into just about anything I can. Smoothies, pumpkin pies, hot chocolate, fruit snacks, and most recently… marshmallows.

The first time I made marshmallows, wayyyy back in my pre-gluten-free days, I knew they were going to have a special place in my life. You see, I’ve never really been a marshmallow fan. They seemed nice and fluffy in the package, but when you bit into them they were nothing but air and sugar. Not my kind of treat. I enjoy something with a little bit more substance. 

But homemade marshmallows, on the other hand, are uh-mazing. They still have the melt-in-your-mouth quality of a store-bough puff, but they actually have a flavor. And that flavor is whatever I want it to be!

I started off my homemade marshmallow journey with just regular old plain marshmallows. They were delicious, to be sure, but I wanted a little something more. You guessed it: chocolate. So I came up with some super delish Healthy Dark Chocolate Marshmallows.

How could you go wrong with chocolate? Don’t be silly, you can’t. 😉 But my curious brain didn’t stop there. And these cute little Mini Cinnamon Maple Marshmallows were born.

Soft, fluffy, cinnamony, mapley, bite-sized… Don’t you just want to squeeze th…. er, taste one? 

They were definitely a huge hit with the kiddos, though I have to admit that I hid half the batch for myself. I know, I know. #selfishmomoftheyear Don’t worry, I’m ok with it. Someday when they’re parents they can hide treats from my grandkids. I give them permission.

Ingredients
  1. 1 c. filtered water
  2. 1/2 c. honey (local is best!)
  3. 1/2 c. organic maple syrup
  4. 3 T. grass-fed gelatin (I like to use Perfect Supplements)
  5. 1 t. vanilla extract (I use my homemade stuff)
  6. 1 t. cinnamon
  7. 1/4 t. real salt
  8. 2 T. arrowroot powder
  9. 1 T. cinnamon
Instructions
  1. In large bowl (a stand mixer works best) sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 cup of the water. Let bloom.
  2. In medium-sized saucepan, combine remaining water with honey and maple syrup. Heat over medium until boiling. Boil, stirring regularly, until it reaches 240°, or soft ball stage. It takes about 10 minutes.
  3. Let honey/maple mixture cool for a minute, then whisk in vanilla, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, and salt. Mix until combined.
  4. With mixer on low, slowly drizzle honey/cinnamon mixture. Once the mixture is added, turn mixer as high as you can (I used speed 8 on my KitchenAid) and beat until color becomes pale and glossy and the marshmallow fluff can stand up in peaks. This should take about 15 minutes.
  5. While the marshmallow is fluffing, grease a 9x13 inch baking dish and line it with parchment paper. Then combine the remaining cinnamon with the arrowroot and dust the parchment with a few teaspoons.
  6. When the fluff is done, pour into the prepared pan, spreading as even as possible with a wet spatula.
  7. Let set on the counter for about 8 hours (I usually do overnight).
  8. Dust the top of the marshmallows with the leftover cinnamon/arrowroot, and remove from the pan by pulling up on the parchment. Using a sharp knife, slice the marshmallows into tiny squares. Dust the knife with the cinnamon in between slices, so the knife doesn't get too sticky and tear the marshmallows.
  9. Store in a covered container on the counter for up to a week.
