Super-easy homemade marshmallows that are gluten-free AND sugar-free! These marshmallows are as soft as clouds and taste even better than store-bought!
Prep Time 2 hours 15 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 15 minutes
Servings 16 marshmallows


  • 1 tablespoon plus 1/4 teaspoon gelatin
  • 1/2 cup water divided
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Powdered xylitol for dusting


  • In a stand mixer bowl, dissolve gelatin in 1/4 cup water. Set aside.
  • Stir remaining 1/4 cup water, honey, and salt together in a small saucepan. Place saucepan over medium heat. Stirring frequently, heat mixture to 245F. Remove from heat.
  • Very slowly, pour water-honey mixture over water-gelatin mixture. Attach a whip attachment to mixer, and beat on high speed 4-5 minutes, or until mixture is thick and creamy. (While mixture is beating, lightly dust a 9x13 pan with powdered xylitol) Add vanilla to marshmallow mixture and beat an additional 30 seconds.
