I’ve been talking about this recipe for way too long and it’s finally here!!! Homemade marshmallows with cardamom and orange zest are everything I imagined they would be. So much fluffier than store-bought marshmallows with the flavors of fall. The great thing about this recipe is that you can add whatever spices and flavors you want or keep them simple and make vanilla marshmallows. I know marshmallows can seem very intimidating and I’ll admit that I was scared to try them for the first time but they are so much easier than you think!!! You just need patience (as usual). Honestly, my kids were licking the spatula while I put aside the marshmallows to set so they got the immediate gratification they wanted. Get ready to impress yourself when you make these!
Quick kosher note: the gelatin used for this recipe is fish gelatin. I could not find kosher gelatin in my local grocery stores so I bought this kosher Pure Gelatin Fish Powder by Modernist Pantry on Amazon. This post is not sponsored and I am not making any money by linking to this kosher gelatin. I just wanted to make life easier for you.
As I always say when making candy, please use a candy thermometer!!
Whisk, whisk and keep on whisking! 10-15 minutes of whisking.
Just look at that beautiful marshmallow. Thick and glossy, like soft-serve vanilla ice cream.
How cute are my kiddies?!?!? I didn’t think they would like the cardamom and orange combo but they were all over it!
With the use of TONS of powdered sugar and corn starch, the marshmallows won’t be sticky and you can cut them into any shapes you want.
Fluffy pillows of sugar and spice and everything nice!
While I was making these marshmallows for this blog post, I added step by step videos to my InstaStory. You can watch the entire process on youtube below.
