Homemade Marshmallows

Servings: 10
Calories: 191kcal


  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons agar-agar
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon dry vanilla
  • 3 egg whites room temperature


  • In an electrical mixer, beat together 3 egg whites and 1/4 teaspoon of dry vanilla. Mix until the other ingredients are ready to be added.
  • On the stove, in a medium size pot add 1 cup of water and 2 teaspoons of agar-agar. Bring to a boil on medium heat.
  • Whisk into the pot 4 cups of powdered sugar, boil for exactly 6 minutes. Take off the heat and add to the egg whites, with the mixer still working. Mix together for 3 minutes.
  • You can shape the marshmallows into any shape you want. I used a pastry bag with a decorating tip.
  • Pipe marshmallow mix onto two large baking sheets.
  • Let marshmallows stand at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. For faster results put in the refrigerator.
  • Enjoy!
