Want an easy dessert recipe that will still amaze your friends and make them bow down to your culinary expertise? Just want to make the best s’more of your life? Then make homemade marshmallows!
These may look difficult, but they’re deceptively easy to make and only require a few ingredients. The only hard part waiting 4 hours to overnight let them firm up.
These sweet treats are made even sweeter by using Nature Nate’s Honey for them. As a brand ambassador for them, I love adding their honey into my meals and desserts. Not only does the honey give marshmallows their classic taste, but Nature Nate’s Honey brand is dedicated to bee health and sustainable practices in their production facilities. You can find more information about them on their website. And pick up a bottle (or two, or three) of delicious honey while you’re there to make these marshmallows!
These marshmallows are perfect for adding to hot chocolate, or just popping in your mouth as a sweet afternoon treat.

Makes about 36 large marshmallows
240 ml - Water - Divided
20 g - Collagen Gelatin Powder - Sub gelatin powder
340 g - Honey - I used Nature Nates
½ tsp - Kosher Salt
1 tsp - Vanilla Extract
30 g - Powdered Sugar - Plus more as needed for dusting
30 g - Tapioca Starch - Plus more as needed for dusting - Sub cornstarch
To the bowl of standing mixer, add ½ cup of water and collagen gelatin powder. Stir and set aside for 5-10 minutes.
To a saucepan over medium heat, add remaining water, honey, and sea salt. Heat until mixture reaches 280F.
In a bowl, mix together powdered sugar and tapioca starch.
Spray an 8x8 baking pan with cooking spray. Dust sugar mixture over it, making sure the sides are thoroughly coated.
Fit whisk attachment to standing mixer. Turn speed to low. Slowly pour the hot, honey mixture down the side of the bowl. When honey has been added completely, turn the mixer speed up to high until mixture is light in color and holds stiff peaks.
Add in vanilla extract and whisk for another minute.
Pour marshmallow mixture into baking pan. Allow to set in a cool, dry place for at least 4 hours to overnight uncovered.
Once set, dust a flat surface with more sugar and tapioca starch. Cut the marshmallows into squares and thoroughly coat in more sugar and tapioca starch.
Store in an airtight container on the counter for up to 1 month.
