SoooOoo fluffy and soft! This was our first time making these and we were so excited with how good they turned out! Never going back to store bought marshmallows again! Haha

Servings: 20 marshmallows (depending how big you cut them)

Total Time: 8 hrs 30 min


3 packages agar agar (1 1/2 tbsp)

1 cup water (split into two parts)

1 1/2 cups granulated sugar

1 cup corn syrup (light is preferred)

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Confectioners' sugar, for dusting (you need a good amount so the marshmallows don’t stick)

*You’ll also need a candy thermometer and a sieve. 🤍


Combine the agar agar and 1/2 cup of cold water in the bowl. Let this sit for around 8-10 minutes while you make the syrup. (Make sure to use a bowl you can mix in later.)

Combine the sugar, corn syrup, salt, and 1/2 cup water in a saucepan and cook over medium heat until it’s all dissolved. Once it’s all combined turn up the heat to high and cook until the syrup is at 240 degrees on a candy thermometer and then remove it from the heat.

Put your mixer on the lowest speed and slowly pour the syrup into your agar agar. Then put the mixer on high and whip until the mixture is a really thick consistency. (You’ll want to mix it for about 10-15 minutes.) And then add in the vanilla and mix until all combined.

Now using a sieve dust an 8”x 12” baking pan with confectioners' sugar. (Add more than you think you should and make sure the whole pan is covered.) Then pour the marshmallow mixture into the pan and smooth out the top using a spatula. Make sure to dust more confectioners' sugar on the stop of the marshmallow mixture and let it set uncovered until it dries out. (For around 6-8 hours or overnight.)

Last but not least, flip the marshmallows onto a cutting board and cut them into squares. (Make sure to dust your knife with some confectioners’ sugar to help it not stick.)

We hope you guys enjoy this recipe and make sure to tag us @twin_coast if you make these! 🤍




The same thing happened to me, it got to a point where it won't get thicker, whiter or bigger.



This recipe doesn't work. I've followed the written recipe twice and both times, the mixture never get to the point of turning white and fluffy. The mixture doesn't set after the recommended resting time and is extremely dense. They don't taste like marshmallows, either. If this recipe does work, it missing crucial information.
