When I stumbled upon a recipe for honey marshmallow s'mores, my eyes lit up. I had never heard of honey marshmallows, but it sounded delicious. What marshmallows were always lacking for me was flavor. For this recipe, I decided to use the Macadamia Nut Blossom honey because it has a smooth, almost maple syrup flavor that compliments chocolate and graham crackers perfectly.
This recipe is a slight variation to a recipe I found at cloudykitchen.com. I highly recommend checking out this food blog for more delicious recipes.
- 0.75oz or 3 packets of gelatine
- 4oz cold water
- 14oz Macadamia Nut blossom honey (liquid)
- 4oz water
- 14oz sugar
- 1 tbsp vanilla paste or the seeds of 1 vanilla bean
- 2 tbsp powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp corn starch
- 1 bar of dark chocolate
- 1 box of graham crackers
- Grease a 9" x 13" baking tin with oil or butter.
- Combine the powdered sugar and corn starch and set aside. This is your "Marshmallow dust".
- In your mixer bowl, combine cold water and gelatine. Mix well with a fork, and leave to bloom while you prepare the sugar syrup.
- In a medium pot, combine the water, honey, vanilla, and sugar. Heat over medium to high heat, stirring occasionally. Heat until the syrup reaches 240˚F, then remove from the heat and leave to cool to 210˚F.
- Turn your mixer (with whisk attachment) on to medium, and mix for a few seconds to help break up the bloomed gelatin.
- With the mixer running, VERY carefully pour the hot sugar syrup into the mixer.
- Turn the speed up to high, and whip for 5-7 minutes, until the marshmallow has doubled in volume, has turned a shade of off white, and holds somewhat of a peak when you stop the mixer and lift out the whisk.
- Pour marshmallow mixture into the prepared tin.
- Dust the top with marshmallow dust.
- Allow to cure for 3-4 hours. I put it in the oven along with a note telling no one to turn on the oven. Here in Hawaii, ants are everywhere and the oven is the only safe, non refrigerated place.
- Using a sharp knife dusted with marshmallow dust, cut marshmallows into the same size as your crackers. If the marshmallow is sticking together, lightly dust the cut surfaces with the marshmallow dust.
- Snap graham crackers in half and place one half of cracker on a baking sheet. Place a small piece of chocolate on each graham cracker. Put in oven at 300 F until chocolate gets soft and melts slightly. If you are making just a few s'mores, you can use a toaster oven for this part.
- Take crackers out of the oven. Put one marshmallow on top of chocolate and cover with another graham cracker.
- You can also torch the marshmallow for that just out of the fire taste.
