Coconut & pandan homemade marshmallows!


Have you ever had homemade marshmallows before? They’re amazing! It tastes so much better than store bought ones, and making them yourself opens up a world of flavours!

I made mine half coconut, half pandan. So very good.


  • 1/2 cup of water +1/4 cup
  • 3 tablespoons unflavoured gelatin
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 tbsp flavouring (I split this batch into 2, so half got coconut flavour, the other half got pandan)
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch


  1. Coat your pan with cooking spray and line the bottom with parchment paper with 2 inches hanging over the side (this will be easier to remove from the pan, acts as a handle)
  2. Pour 1/2 cup water into stand mixer and add gelatin to soften for 10 min
  3. In a large sauce pan, mix sugar, evaporated milk, and 1/4 cup of water and whisk over low heat until sugar dissolves, don’t worry about the brown colour from the milk, that will go away!
  4. Bring mixture to a gentle boil, and reduce to a simmer,  use a candy thermometer and remove from heat when it reaches 250 F, this should take about 20 min
  5. Add The syrup to the gelatin mixture and beat on low until incorporated
  6. This is where I split the mixture in half. Add coconut flavour to one, and pandan to the other
  7. Increase the speed of the whisk to high and beat until fluffy and tripled in volume. Takes about 10 min.
  8. Repeat for second flavor
  9. Scrape first mixture into the prepared pan, and layer the other flavour on top
  10. Allow mixture to set uncovered and not in the refrigerator! For at least 8 hours to overnight
  11. After the mixture has set, Combine the powered sugar and corn starch.
  12. ASoft over the marshmallow and remove from the pan,
  13. Cut into squares about inch sized
  14. Immediately roll in the powder to set and to avoid getting too sticky
  15. Store in air tight container for up to 2 weeks
