Two Ingredient Marshmallow Fluff is exactly what marshmallow fluff should be: fluffy! While this recipes takes a little bit of work to make, it requires very simple ingredients. The best part? It's all natural without all the fake ingredients and preservatives.
I enjoy this recipe on top of my Hot Chocolate. Every time I make this, it makes me feel like I'm a kid again! There's something so special about a warm mug of hot chocolate loaded with marshmallow.
A note about Two Ingredient Marshmallow Fluff:
This recipe makes marshmallow fluff and traditional marshmallows:
Once you start making your marshmallows, you will want to start working fairly quickly. If you would like to enjoy it as fluff on top of hot chocolate, make sure to add it quickly once the fluff is done. Since the marshmallow is gelatin base, it will start to stiffen.
With that being said, you can absolutely enjoy the marshmallow even if you don't get it to your mug fast enough. Like I said, it will start to stiffen up but it will firm up into cloudy soft marshmallows...not a bad thing if you ask me! If you prefer to enjoy marshmallows, place the fluff in a greased glass container and allow to stiffen for about twenty minutes. You can also cut them into squares once they harden and toss with arrowroot powder to prevent them from sticking.
- 2 tsp powdered gelatin
- Half a ⅓ measuring cup of cold water just over two tablespoons
- ⅓ cup maple syrup
- Place the powdered gelatn in a small glass dish. Pour the cold water on top and stir to combine. Allow the gelatin mixture to bloom (harden) while you continue working on the rest of the recipe. This will take about five minutes
- Place a medium size pot of water on the stove. You don't need a lot of water, about 1 inch worth. Heat the water until it's lightly simmering
- Pour the maple syrup into the bowl of a stand mixer and place on top of the pot over the hot water, like a double boiler. The goal here is to heat up the maple syrup beyond room temperature, but not too hot!
- Once the maple syrup is warm, place the bowl on the stand mixer and attach the mixer with the whisk attachment
- Once the gelatin is bloomed (all the water should be absorbed and the gelatin should bounce back slightly to the touch), carefully place the dish in the simmering water (the same water that heated the maple syrup) making sure not the get any water into the gelatin. The gelatin will start to melt and become liquid
- Once the gelatin is completely melted, pour into the maple syrup
- Turn the stand mixer on high and set a timer for 6 minutes. During this time the gelatin and maple syrup will start to whip, inorporating air into the mixture and become light and fluffy and white in color. Please note that the marshammlows will NOT be completely white like a conventional marshmallow. This recipe contains maple syrup which is a dark color compared to white sugar
- Once the marshmallow mixture has whipped for 6 minutes, use immediately and enjoy however you are using it!
