Learn how easy it is to make honey-sweetened Healthy Marshmallows. Paleo marshmallows without corn syrup are the perfect allergy-friendly treat.
Pour 1/2 cup of water in the bowl of a stand mixer, and sprinkle the gelatin over the water. Let sit for five minutes.
Using the whisk attachment on the stand mixer, slowly pour the hot liquid mixture in and mix on low. Add the vanilla.
Slowly increase your mixer speed (I have a Kitchen Aid and I upped it from "stir" to a "3", and then after a few minutes to a "5", then up to a "7"), and mix for a total of 10-15 minutes.
While it's mixing, butter a 9x13 baking dish. Pour the thickened mixture in, and push it down with your hands. Leave it uncovered for 12 hours.
After at least 12 hours, remove the solid marshmallow rectangle and cut through it using kitchen shears to create your individual marshmallows.

If marshmallows are too firm or chewy it means your honey mixture was too hot when it was added to the gelatin in the stand mixer.
If the marshmallows seem a bit soggy even after they have dried, it is because everything was not mixed at a high enough speed for long enough.
