Tasty, especially when slightly warm. Great addition to jello to make a mousse, but DO NOT try to make rice cripsy bars, the marshmallow has too much water, soggy.
I made the creme, and it doesn't have much sweetness, but it has a pleasant texture. I think this would be a good base for a mousse recipe, I'll be expirimenting with this one.
Yucky, didn't really like them at all
Probably like most using this recipe, I really wanted to try it because of counting calories. I absolutely LOVE marshmallows and I regularly make them homeade. My favorite part is eating what stuck to the wisk. :) DONT do that with this recipe. I about gaged from the horrid aftertaste. I actually was very dissaponted at first with this recipe. Because of the egg white base it greatly resembles a meringe. It doesn't stay a creme for long and microwaving sends it straight back into a liquid state. I put it in a containner and just left it on the counter, not even wanting to eat any. To my surprise, I forced myself to retry it the next day (in its solid manner). I at it straight up with a spoon and actually enjoyed it. I then added it to my hot cocoa and it was fabulous!
Something I would suggest to do is add some cocoa powder right after you remove the gelatin from the stove. It is fantastic!
Ok - these tasted NOTHING like marshmallows and had a funky consistancey. I would NOT recommend this recipe. I'm still hunting for a good sugar-free marshmallow recipe.
I have lost 40 pounds over the past 9 months and have been missing eating marshmallows (totally wasted calories)... found this recipe and made them last night. EASY! I added a little extra Splenda and vanilla as someone else had commented on them being a little bland... don't know if the extra made the difference, but they are delicious! I also re-entered the recipe under my private collection to see how the calorie count came out and it broke down to 14 kcal for 36 grams... It's all in the serving size breakdown. Thanks for posting!
(In response to "Pabbit") Can you half the water to make rice crispy treats? -Lizzy
Can you substitute the splenda with some other non sugar sweetner for those who are diabetic? I am trying to make Rice crispy treats.
Made the recipe, found it a little bland, but OK. Will add more flavoring next time. Calorie count seems way too high for these ingredients--knox is 20 cals per pack, egg whites less than 20 cals each, how does this get to more than 300 calories?
