Question about vegan marshmallows....
First off, are they worth trying? I've never had them but miss marshmallows :( Are they fluffly like regular ones?
Also, what do you use them for? Can you replace them in any recipe that calls for them, like rice krispy treats?
i haven't had them but i will tell you this: i think it depends on the brand. it seems that people really like dandies and perhaps sweet and sara.
also, i wouldn't use them for rice krispie treats just die to expense. you can find vegan marshmallow cream or ricemallow cream ooor use a recipe on this site (seems like most of them are corn-syrup based).
i had dandies... they were awesome and well worth it... i haven't made rice crispy treats with them but i made rocky road bars and put them in my hot chocolate... they were a little big so i just sniped them in half with kitchen sheers
Sweet and Sara's vanilla marshmallows are soft, sticky, slightly chewy and just delicious. I used them in a marshmallow "milk"shake and they were incredible. They were also wonderful plain, right out of the package. I didn't try melting them, but they have a recipe for the rice cereal bars on their website, so they must be fine to melt. They are a bit pricey though. sweetandsara.com
I haven't had regular marshmallows in so long I don't remember their taste really well, but I do remember they were more gummy in texture than these.
I'd love to try their smores. They look really good coated in Belgian chocolate.
