A few weeks ago I inadvertently made sugar free marshmallows when attempting to make sugar free marshmallow fluff so I decided to post the recipe for those who are interested. I ended up eating most of them on their own, though a couple of them I added to my stevia sweetened hot cocoa where they melted beautifully. Note: since these marshmallows do not contain sugar they can not be toasted.
1 cup water
1/4 cup Swerve brand powdered/confectioners sweetener
1 egg white
2 Tbs gelatin powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp salt
In a heat safe mixing bowl, add 1/4 cup water and sprinkle gelatin evenly on top of it. Set aside. Add the remaining 3/4 cup water, Swerve, and salt to a small saucepot on medium high heat. Bring to a boil, whisking periodically. Boil until the sweetener and salt are completely dissolved. Gently pour the boiling liquid over the bloomed gelatin and whisk with an electric or stand mixer on low, slowly increasing the speed as the liquid starts to cool down and get frothy. Once the liquid is no longer steaming, add the egg white and vanilla. Whisk until soft peaks form. Pour into silicone molds or a glass 8×8 baking dish. Chill until set, at least 4 hours. Unmold or cut into squares and enjoy. Store in an airtight contain in the refrigerator for up to a week.
