When the weather outside is frightful, there’s nothing like curling up on the couch with a steaming cup of hot cocoa. The experience only gets better when there are a couple of puffy marshmallows bobbing around in the cup, but most of the commercially available options include gobs of high fructose corn syrup and gelatin derived from animals. If you’re adhering to the vegan diet, or simply desire a marshmallow that’s not quite so toxic, this recipe can help. Follow the easy instructions to create your very own marshmallows at home, using organic ingredients and agar instead of gelatin.
