that’s my kind of bubbly

 

Now let’s make some mallows!

In a small bowl, mix together gelatin and 9 tbsp water and set aside.

Prepare an 8 x 8 baking dish buy lining it with wax paper and then sprinkling it with icing sugar/corn flour mixture. Set aside. Start heating sugar and 1/2 cup of water in a medium saucepan over medium heat until it is dissolved.

Add gelatin to saucepan and bring to a boil, then promptly remove from heat and transfer to a large heat proof bowl (mixing bowl). Allow to cool for a few minutes. Add blueberry jam, vanilla and a pinch of salt.

Beat with a mixer until it gets big, and fluffy like marshmallow fluff! Then transfer the fluff into your prepared dish and let it sit over night to set properly ( 4 hours or more to get the best results) sift your sugar/corn flour mixture and then cut.

get that treat and those boots off my couch girl!!!

Hope you enjoyed our first ever attempt at making homemade marshmallows! Bitty loved making the acai blueberry jam and eating the mallows, of course.We had lots of fun testing our recipes and plan on putting our mallows into a special treat tomorrow! p.s. check out my snapchat @mamarazza21 to see what it is!

Fit chicks need a lil sugar every now and then and I strongly believe cheat days aren’t so bad if you home make your yummies with less than 10 ingredients! Plus what better way to teach our kids healthy habits then to show them how to eliminate processed foods , by making their own food and treats!
