S’Mores on a Stick with Homemade Marshmallows

Yesterday I shared a fun Halloween Party Table for the Wilton Giveaway, on the table were these yummy S’Mores on a Stick with Homemade Marshmallows. It just doesn’t get any better than Homemade Marshmallows my friends! They really aren’t as difficult as they seem, and there are so many fun things you can make with them.

Before I made them for the first time last year, I thought they would be super difficult. They don’t take any special ingredients or tools {although a candy thermometer is a good idea}.

After the Marshmallows are set, turn them onto a cutting board that is dusted with powered sugar and cut them into squares. You will need melting chocolate, I use Almond Bark and crushed graham crackers.

I used the Wilton Vampire Fun Pix to display them for the Halloween Party. I thought it would be fun to serve them on a twig, sorry I didn’t get around to collecting some so I could show you.

Baker’s Notes:

  1. These were not difficult, but did take some time to make.
  2. Making them the night before you need them {or even a couple days} is a good idea
  3. I do not have a candy thermometer, I did use my meat thermometer, which probably was not the best to use, but it did give me a reading, although I’m not sure how accurate it was. I boiled the mixture about 5 minutes, you will need to stand right next to it and watch it.
  4. I used my hand mixer (that’s all I have) and it took about 4-5 minutes, the bowl was almost full of marshmallow mixture.
  5. The mixture is VERY sticky, so you won’t get all of it out of the bowl.
  6. If you run your knife under cold water, the marshmallows cut much easier.

Prep Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes

Homemade Marshmallows...not as difficult as you might think. Recipe from HoosierHomemade.com


  • 2 tablespoons + 2 1/2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin ( I used almost 4 envelopes Knox brand)
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 1/2 cup corn syrup, light
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Powdered sugar for dusting marshmallows
  • Chocolate for dipping {I use Almond Bark}
  • Graham Crackers {crushed}
  • Sticks or Wooden Skewers


  1. Spray 13×9 baking pan with cooking spray and set aside. In a large bowl, add 1/2 cup cold water and sprinkles gelatin on top. Set aside while you cook the sugar mixture.
  2. In a heavy saucepan, combine sugar, 1/2 cup cold water and corn syrup. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly until the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Turn heat to medium and bring mixture to a boil, do not stir. Add a candy thermometer, and cook until mixture is 240 degrees {mine went pretty fast, about 4-5 minutes}
  4. Remove from heat and carefully pour mixture over the gelatin. Add vanilla. Beat on high speed until mixture triples in volume, and is thick and white.
  5. In a separate bowl, with clean beaters, beat the egg whites on high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold egg whites into marshmallow mixture.
  6. Pour mixture into prepared baking pan
  7. Smooth batter with a greased spatula.
  8. Place marshmallow, uncovered, in fridge and chill for about 3 hours or overnight.
  9. Carefully lift marshmallows from pan and place on cutting board, using a large WET knife cut marshmallows into squares.
  10. Crush graham crackers in the food processor or seal them in a baggie and crush with a rolling pin.
  11. Melt chocolate in microwave and carefully dip marshmallows into chocolate, let excess drip off as much as possible
  12. Immediately dip in graham cracker crumbs
  13. This is the same method I use for Marshmallows for the Holidays

    You need a kitchenaid mixer! I live close to The Nebraska Furniture Mart, a few years ago they had mixers on sale for $99/each. Since WalMart used to price match, I took that ad and got the mixer at our local WalMart……….. because the weather was too icy and snowy to get to the Mart. Walmart was on my way home. But that was before store #1965 started demanding you have the ad then refusing to give you the ad price. Now I don’t bother.
