Cinnamon and Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows

Pumpkin Spice Marshmallows | The Evermine Blog |
Marshmallows are a dangerous thing, especially if they are within arms reach and floating in a mug of hot chocolate. Lately, friends of mine have been saying that homemade marshmallows are the best thing ever, but I never thought to make them myself until recently. Although I consider myself a capable cook, I never thought I could be much of a confectioner. I always figured that I’d make a big mess, and I did the first couple of times, but once I got into the groove it was all worth the effort. Especially because I can add any flavor that I want.

Since fall is finally upon us, I thought it would be nice to create some flavored marshmallows that are prefect for the season: cinnamon because that’s the best smell of fall, and pumpkin spice because I love anything pumpkin flavored.

To Make the Marshmallows:
  1. In a medium bowl combine 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 tsp of vanilla extract. Sprinkle the gelatin over the mixture and let sit for about 5 minutes to fully absorb all the water and bloom.
  2. Prepare a 9×13 pan by lining with parchment paper and spray with baking spray. This is also a good time to spray your spatula. Set aside for later.
  3. In a medium saucepan add 1/2 cup of water, sugar, salt and corn syrup and bring to a boil. Once all the sugar has completely dissolved, test the temperature with a candy thermometer. Cook until the temperature reads 240F and remove from heat.
  4. Turn your mixer on a low setting and slowly pour the hot sugar mixture into the gelatin. Once all the mixture is added, increase the mixer speed to high and beat for about 10-15 minutes or until the mixture gets white and fluffy.
  5. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and smooth it over with the spatula. At this point you can garnish you marshmallows with the add-on flavors ([b]see directions below[/b]). Let sit for at least 4 hours or overnight to set.
  6. Once your marshmallows have set, lift up the parchment paper and set on a cutting board. Cut into squares or shapes with a knife or pizza cutter, and lightly dust each square with the remaining sugar and cornstarch mixture

For Pumpking Spice Marshmallows:
  1. Combine water and sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat and stir occasionally until all the sugar is dissolved. Add the pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice and allspice, and simmer for about 5 mins. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature. Drizzle a couple of spoonfuls of syrup over the marshmallow mixture. Once you get a good drizzle all over, drag a knife through the mixture a few times vertically then horizontally to create a marbled effect.

For Cinnamon Coated Marshmallows:
  1. Dust the top of your marshmallows with the cinnamon coating to create a thin layer of flavor.

Fall-Flavored Marshmallows: Cinnamon and Pumpkin Spice | |The Evermine Blog |
Garnish a cup of hot chocolate or add a twist to your next s’more with these! They keep for a couple weeks in an airtight container, but they probably will be eaten up before then. I’m going to treat my friends to these homemade puffy delights so I packaged them in some glass jars with a hinged lid which I found at Fred Meyer’s and topped them with our Katniss labels.

  1. The ingredients for the marshmallows are missing the amounts. Sugar is the only one that states 2 CUP sugar.
    What are the amounts for the other ingredients?

    These look delicious and I am getting recipes together to give as gifts for Christmas 2018
