    Homemade Marshmallows

    Recently, I saw an episode with Giada DeLaurentis on the Food Network in which she made homemade marshmallows. Does anyone know if they can successfully be made using Splenda instead of regular sugar icon_question.gif

    Thanks! icon_lol.gif

    Sugar-Free Marshmallows & Marshmallow Creme - Low Carb Luxury

    3 envelopes unflavored gelatin
    5 tablespoons Splenda
    3 egg whites
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    1/4 cup cold water
    3/4 cup boiling water
    1/2 teaspoon marshmallow flavored oil (LorAnn or American Spice) (optional)

    1. Sprinkle gelatin over cold water in a mixing bowl.
    2. Set aside for 5 minutes to soften.
    3. Add to boiling water in saucepan; cook and stir until gelatin is dissolved.
    4. Remove from heat.
    5. Cool to consistency of thick syrup.
    6. Stir in Splenda® and vanilla (and marshmallow flavored oil if using.).
    7. Beat egg whites till soft peaks begin to form.
    8. Very slowly, trickle a small stream of gelatin mixture into egg white, beating until all gelatin is mixed in.
    9. Continue beating until light and fluffy (but not until they're dry.) If you're making marshmallow crème, pour into a jar (jelly jar, peanut butter jar, etc.) and refrigerate.
    10. If making marshmallows, continue-- For Mini marshmallows-- Pour into greased and floured pan, cool to set, and cut into size desired.
    11. For larger marshmallows, or marshmallow"eggs"-- Fill large square pan with a mixture of 2 parts vanilla protein powder to 1 part dried milk powder (the new Keto milk powder works well here.) The pan should be about two inches filled.
    12. Take a dry raw egg and make indentations in the powdery bottom with the fuller base of the egg for making marshmallows, or with the oval side of the egg for making marshmallow"eggs" Then pour the marshmallow creme filling into the little"moulds", sprinkle a dusting of the powder mixture over tops of marshmallows, and allow to set If you make the"eggs" and want to cover them with chocolate, melt the dark chocolate low-carb bars in the microwave till very soft and almost liquid (you can use the Carbolite, the DeLite bars, etc.) Dip each formed marshmallow egg into the chocolate quickly to coat and place flat side down onto waxed paper to set.

    Problem: sets into marshmallows quickly, so it's not a creme for long. But it can be microwaved. On regular power, it melts within 3-5 second. [adjust power for your machine]. Use the crème immediately or microwave it.
