Yes, you can make gelatin-free marshmallows at home — and it's easy! These fluffy marshmallows use agar agar, a type of sea vegetable, in place of the traditional gelatin. They're spiced with saffron and cinnamon, then covered with chocolate but you can try different spices and coatings to find what you like best. These marshmallows are perfect for snacking, sundaes, or for stirring into a big mug of hot cocoa.
