Y’all have seen my recipes for carb-conscious rice crispy treats.
In it, I used a sugar-free marshmallow that I purchased, but I honestly got tired of buying them, and I wanted to learn how to make them from scratch.
I’m also always curious about how easy it is to make the things we buy, and it’s actually much easier than we think.
Marshmallows are absolutely much easier to make than you would think! And they taste completely delicious when made with Truvia® Sweet Complete™ All-Purpose Sweetener and Truvia® Confectioners Sweetener.
Because Truvia® Sweet Complete™ bakes and browns like sugar in recipes, you get the effect of these marshmallows that you expect.
I then use Truvia® Confectioners to roll the marshmallows in to give them that classic powdery texture. As a bonus, Truvia® Sweet Complete™ and Truvia® Confectioners Sweeteners are zero-calories per serving and a one-to-one substitute for sugar.
These are definitely lighter and fluffier than other homemade marshmallows I’ve had. They also set quickly, so work fast.
Get the recipe below and enjoy squishy marshmallows that actually brown and melt when you torch them.

How to make sugarless marshmallows
Begin by dissolving the gelatin in your stand mixer bowl, in ½ cup of water. Turn your stand mixer on to low speed to incorporate it while you make your simple syrup mixture.
Add ⅔ cup of water to a saucepan along with 1 cup of Truvia® Sweet Complete™ All-Purpose Sweetener. Let the mixture come to a rolling boil. And boil until you can see through the mixture and it’s completely clear (it will start out cloudy).
Add the mixture to the gelatin, and beat at high speed for 10-15 minutes.
Once the mixture has puffed up, quickly add it to your baking dish and smooth the top with an offset spatula.
Let sit at room temp, and slice into it with a sharp knife.
Optional: Dust with some Truvia® Confectioners Sweetener for that recognizable marshmallow texture.Print
