Deep Fried Marshmallows

Hello, my dear readers! Today, I’m absolutely thrilled to share with you a recipe that’s as fun to make as it is to eat—Deep Fried Marshmallows! This delectable treat combines the gooey, soft allure of marshmallows with the crispy, golden charm of a deep-fried crust. Perfect for parties, family gatherings, or a sweet end to a movie night, this recipe will turn any ordinary day into a celebration. So let’s dive right into this indulgent adventure that promises to be anything but boring!

Ingredients

  • Jumbo Marshmallows: 20 pieces
  • Pancake Mix: 1 cup
  • Large Egg: 1 egg
  • Milk: ¾ cup
  • Vegetable Oil: Enough for deep frying, approximately 2 to 3 cups (depending on the size of your pot)
  • Optional Toppings:
    • Whipped Cream, to taste
    • Chocolate Syrup, to taste
    • Sprinkles, to taste

How to Make Deep Fried Marshmallows

1. Preheat the Oil

  • Heat about 3 inches of vegetable oil in a deep pot to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Prepare the Batter

  • In a bowl, mix the pancake mix, egg, milk, and a bit of oil until smooth.

3. Coat Marshmallows

  • Dip each marshmallow into the batter, ensuring it’s evenly coated, then gently shake off any excess.

4. Fry Marshmallows

  • Place the coated marshmallows in the hot oil. Fry for about 30 seconds to 1 minute, turning occasionally, until golden brown.

5. Drain and Serve

  • Remove the marshmallows with a slotted spoon, drain on paper towels, and top with whipped cream, chocolate syrup, and sprinkles while still warm.

Helpful Tips

  • Temperature Control: Maintaining the oil temperature is key to ensuring your marshmallows don’t absorb too much oil and become greasy. Use a thermometer to check frequently.
  • Serving Suggestions: Serve these beauties right away to enjoy their crisp exterior and molten center. They’re best when warm!

Substitutions/Variations

  • Vegan/Dairy-Free: Use a dairy-free milk alternative and an egg replacer in your batter to cater to dietary restrictions.
  • Batter Varieties: Feel adventurous? Try using a tempura batter for a lighter, crispier texture, or add cocoa powder to the pancake mix for chocolate-flavored marshmallows.

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Can I use mini marshmallows instead?
    • Absolutely! Just keep a close eye on them as they will cook faster.
  2. Can I bake them instead of frying?
    • Baking won’t give you the same crispy texture, but you can definitely try air-frying them for a lighter version.

Storage Instructions

Deep Fried Marshmallows are best enjoyed fresh, but if you have leftovers, store them in an airtight container at room temperature. They can be reheated in an oven or toaster oven for a few minutes to refresh the crispiness.
