GF Marshmallow Cones – Ingredients Required

Homemade marshmallow requires surprisingly few ingredients:

  • Water
  • White Sugar (granulated/castor sugar works best)
  • Gelatin
  • Vanilla essence
  • Sprinkles
  • Gluten-free ice-cream cones – these small gf cones by Eskal work really well. They are sturdy and strong for gluten-free products and as they can be stood up, it makes pouring the marshmallow into them, even easier. Alternatively, the ‘pointy’ type cones will also work too.

Marshmallow Instructions

To make the marshmallow, you first need to bring the water, sugar and gelatin to a gentle boil and allow to simmer for 10 minutes.
