Marshmallows? What will they think of next? For several years I’ve heard of people dehydrating marshmallows, but hadn’t bothered. We aren’t big on sweets here. Both Mike and I tend to have a problem with weight and we’re both diabetic, although controlled by nutrition.
I finally decided to try them and see what it’s all about.
I dehydrated both the regular and the mini sized marshmallows. After a day of drying, I couldn’t tell much difference. So I asked a few people about it. It seems that they don’t shrink like most dehydrated foods, but when cool, they get hard and crispy.
Slicing for Wafers
They were so hard that eating a whole one became a bit of a challenge for me. I decided to cut it into wafers and see how that would work.
Although I was able to cut my wafers, they are quite crumbly and I had a lot of wasted powder and chunks. I wondered what to do with this, so I decided to buzz it into a powder.
There wasn’t much powder, so I added some mini marshmallows and buzzed them, too.
It turned into a fine, sweet powder. You could use it just as it is as a sprinkle on cupcakes, fruit cups, or other deserts.
A Gloppy Mess
I played around with it a bit and decided to add warm water. It turned into a bit of a lumpy mass.
Boiling Water Does the Trick
Then I really got aggressive and added boiling water.
Before long, I had a wonderful marshmallow cream sauce! Imagine all the great things you can do with this.
