Is maple syrup a whole food?
Can you put weed in marshmallows?
Wait… can you make marshmallows with maple syrup?
These are the questions that keep me up at night.
A few months ago, I came home after a night out with friends, grabbed my candy thermometer, and decided to figure out if I could make simple infused marshmallows using things that were already in my house.
Success! These things are a game-changer.
Marshmallows are notoriously filled with nasty ingredients, and every time I think about making rice crispy treats, I stop at the shelf and give them all a longing glance. But I already know that it's going to be a pass.
Even the ones in the health food stores that proudly announce their vegan, non-GMO-ness are filled with unpronounceable words, and then when you get them home they don't really taste good and the texture for rice crispy treat making is severely lacking.
Enter the Supernatural Marshmallow.
I mainly wanted these to make rice crispy treats that tasted like real rice crispy treats. I've made several versions in the past but none of them really hit the bullseye for these.
But the supernatural marshmallow has also found its way into many a cup of hot cacao since then.
Calculating Weed-Infused Marshmallow Dosage
We get asked questions about dosage all the time, so we've created a dosage calculator for you to do your own math.
While the variables will change in your kitchen, here's an example for you to base your calculations on.
This recipe made about 40 1”x1” marshmallows in my pan, so I used 90 mg, which made each marshmallow about 2.25mg each.
Let me know in the comments what you try and what works for you.
I update the blog as often as possible with what I learn from new research and from you. Remember… we still have a lack of actionable research and we're all learning together. Sharing helps everyone!
Cannabis Infused Marshmallow RecipePrint Recipe
- 1 cup maple syrup
- 1/3 cup cold water
- 1 tablespoon gelatin
Prepare a pan with parchment paper and sprinkle with powdered sugar or coconut flour (I used this in a pinch and it worked well)
In a stand mixer or deep bowl, add the cold water and sprinkle on the gelatin. Let sit while working with the maple syrup.
In small saucepan, bring maple syrup to a boil. Reduce to medium and check temperature regularly until it reaches 235f.
Turn on the mixer and combine gelatin and water.
Once mixed, slowly pour in the maple syrup.
Add FECO, RSO or other liquid concentrate.
Let the stand mixer run until stiff peaks occur (about 15 minutes)
Pour into parchment lined pan (9x12 for about 40 thinner marshmallows, 8x8 for thicker marshmallows)
Let sit for at least 4 hours or overnight.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge or use it for rice crispy treats!
Note: so far, I've only made this using concentrates or infusing them by adding oil while making rice crispy treats. I'll test making it with oil directly into the marshmallow to see if you can get the same effect, but I think it may be a bit challenging and could totally throw off the texture.
Happy 420! I hope you love them!
