Coconut Marshmallows
Both the Toasted Coconut and Vanilla Marshmallow Meltaways from Sweet & Sara were among the best we tasted in a field of dozens of brands—and they’re vegan, not made with gelatin like almost all the other marshmallows. Bravo!

Toasting Marshmallows

Who needs a campfire—or even a fireplace? There are other ways to make a delicious toasted marshmallow!

  • If you have a gas stove, you can toast the marshmallow over an open flame until it begins to brown—about a minute, depending on how “toasty” you like it.
  • MarshmallowA fondue fork is ideal for toasting because it has a protective handle, but impaling the marshmallow on the tip of a regular fork works, too. You can use skewers, as well; bamboo skewers will not heat up and are easier to hold. You’ll need to soak them first, though, so they won’t catch fire!
  • For more romantic toasting, use a candle—but not a scented one.
  • Similarly, avoid toasting over Sterno: The marshmallow will smell and taste of it. A votive candle will work, and if you’re having guests, you can put a votive at each place setting.
  • For best results, hold the marshmallow about two inches away from the flame and turn it continuously. This way, the marshmallow will melts from the inside out and brown evenly.
