Ohhhh my friends this recipe is one you’re going to want to make and give this year, guaranteed! These are the BEST Nutella Swirl Marshmallows I’ve made to date, and you’ll love them!
I mean look those marshmallows fresh and tender, flavored with Nutella, then swirled with more Nutella to finish them off. Dust them with powdered sugar and these babies are ready to go.
How to Enjoy Nutella Swirl Marshmallows
Snack on them. Share them with friends. Toss them in cocoa. Or toast them (carefully!) over a campfire for s’mores! There really isn’t a wrong way to enjoy them.
Can I Use Homemade Marshmallows in S’mores?
Yes you can! Like I said toast them very carefully. But before you get to toasting them you have to let them dry out. I cut them all, dust them with powdered sugar, and let them dry in a cupboard undisturbed for 4-5 days.
In fact in my experience with most homemade marshmallows if you try to toast them or put them in cocoa they will melt away in no time at all. Drying makes them last longer.
Just be aware that toasting homemade marshmallows over an open fire is tricky. The drier the better but even very dry homemade will quickly toast up over a fire.
Nutella Swirl Marshmallows are Perfect for Gift Giving!
I think these make the very best kind of gift, the EDIBLE GIFT! Yes, I love to get and give edible presents, don’t you? Be sure to check out my HUGE list of Edible Gifts that I put together. I keep updating it with new ideas so be sure to check it out and bake or cook your presents this year!
Where Do I Buy Nutella in Bulk?
I happened upon a nice surprise at Costco the other day, BIG BUCKETS of Nutella! Now I don’t know if they’re going to be a staple at Costco or not but I also found them on Amazon. They’re linked them up below so you can grab the bucket instead of those tiny little jars…
- 3 packets of Knox Gelatine
- 1 cup cold water, divided
- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 cup corn syrup
- pinch of sugar
- vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cups Nutella
- powdered sugar for dusting
- put the gelatine in the bowl of a stand mixer
- pour cold water over it and let it sit while you work on the sugar and corn syrup
- bring the remaining water, sugar, corn syrup, and pinch of salt to a boil and boil until it hits the soft ball stage, 240˚, stirring occasionally
- remove from the heat and let it rest a moment
- fit the mixer with the whisk attachment and stir the gelatine and water mixture on low
- pour the boiling sugar mixture over the gelatine very slowly, don't add it all at once and be sure to keep the mixer on the lowest setting
- once you've poured all the sugar in turn up the mixer one notch
- set a time for 10 minutes and every minute or so turn up the mixer a notch until you're beating it one high
- while the mixture is beating you can prep the pan by lightly greasing it and lining it with parchment paper, then lightly grease again, then dust it with powdered sugar
- also gently warm about 1/2 cup of the Nutella while the mixture is beating
- once you hit 10-11 minutes of mixing you should have a huge fluffy blob in the mixer
- if you don't continue beating the mixture 1-2 more minutes
- once you have a huge white fluffy blob turn the mixer down to low and add the vanilla and the warmed Nutella
- whip again until fully incorporated
- pour into the prepared pan
- immediately scoop the last of Nutella on top of the marshmallow
- use a butter knife to swirl
- let rest 8 hours or more
- dust the top with more powdered sugar
- use a knife dusted with powdered sugar to cut them
- dust all the sides with powdered sugar
- store where it's dry, and only lightly cover them
- or store open in a secure cupboard to dry enough for s'mores or cocoa
