Homemade marshmallows small batch style. Made in a bread loaf pan to make 8 big marshmallows!
I foresee lots of mugs of hot chocolate in your future. Or maybe a hot chocolate party? And how sad would those mugs be without a big, honking homemade marshmallow floating on top?
I made you a small pan of homemade marshmallows. I spread the gooey batter in a 9 x 5-inch bread loaf pan. When sliced, you get 8 large marshmallows. So perfect for so many cool days ahead.
You don’t really have to wear flannel when making and eating marshmallows, but it does something for the flavor, I tell ya. Also, if it’s one of those perfect crisp Fall days where you need a jacket in the morning but the sun warms you plenty in the afternoon, the marshmallows will be especially delicious.

Do you see the tiny black specks? They’re vanilla bean!
I’m moderately obsessed with vanilla beans lately. I found a spice store in my town that sells 3 for about $8, and I think that’s pretty reasonable, as far as vanilla beans go. So, I’ve been using them in everything (especially pie!), but if you don’t have half of a vanilla bean, just use 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
If anything, vanilla extract can sometimes be fruitier and stronger than vanilla beans. Although, the tiny specks of vanilla bean in your marshmallow are so fun and crunchy.
How to make homemade marshmallows:
I’ve always wanted to make homemade marshmallows, but I have been putting it off for a rainy day when I had plenty of time to make them. I assumed they were time-consuming and difficult. Honestly, I had this batch of marshmallows in the pan in 20 minutes. Yeah, they had to set for 3 hours before I could cut them and roll them in powdered sugar (the funnest part!), but seriously, homemade marshmallows couldn’t be easier.
Maybe it’s harder to wield a large amount of sticky marshmallow cream into a pan, but when you’re dealing with a small amount, it’s easier? I’m not sure why these were so simple to pull together.
All I know is my future has a lot of homemade marshmallows (small batch style) in it. And that can never be a bad thing.
I can’t wait to try to use these in my Smores Dip recipe!
