With kids at home and the warm weather we’ve had in Ohio the last few weekends, it certainly feels like summer is here. We spent the day yesterday being outside. Hubby doing yard work and me playing with the kids. I did help clean up our outdoor furniture a bit, so I have somewhere to sit until we can budget for a new outdoor dining set. 🙂
We had some brush we needed to trim back in our yard and we attempted to burn it, well it didn’t work out so well, but we got enough of a fire going to have some S’mores! We also love these on apples. Just bake some apples with cinnamon and a little butter until tender, then put these on top for a healthy dessert. They were also a treat in my latte this morning.
I hope you all are staying home and staying healthy. Hopefully the warm weather sticks around and we can just have a really long summer with extra snuggle time, while we pray for those that are on the front lines.
- 1 cup Honey
- 4 TBS Gelatin Grass-fed best two great sources linked below.
- 1 cup water
- 1 tea Vanilla Extract I started making my own and it's super easy!
- Pull out your stand mixer. I only use mine a few times per year but this is one of my recipes that it's super helpful! If that’s not an option, get a partner who is willing to hold an electric mixer while you pour the boiling honey into the gelatin. (Dustin has done this before when we've made this at his parents for our thanksgiving baked apples!)
- Place the gelatin in the bottom of a large mixing bowl. Pour 1/2 c water on top and whisk (with mixer) to combine, then set aside. Pour the honey and remaining 1/2 c water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a rolling boil, stirring to make sure it doesn’t burn or boil over.
- Turn on your mixer to medium-high in the bowl with the gelatin. SLOWLY pour a steady stream of hot honey, making sure the stream of liquid hits the side of the bowl first so it doesn’t curdle the gelatin. Keep pouring slowly until all everything is combined. Then leave the mixer on for 15 minutes. Yes 15 whole minutes. Add the vanilla about 2 minutes before it’s done.
- Grease a 9×13 inch pan with coconut oil or any other healthy oil. When the marshmallow cream is whipped to perfection, spread it into the pan. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight. Then cut into squares and use for all your marshmallow-y needs. Note: they still work great in S'mores if you do the aluminum foil packets and place by the fire, otherwise roasting them they will melt quickly so just be cautious and be ready with those graham crackers!
A couple options for grass-fed gelatin sources (thanks in advance for using my affiliate links!)
For Graham Crackers,Pamela's Gluten Free have been the best we've tried. You can get them on Amazon or Thrive Market.
