Black Cherry Marshmallows by Laura Stafford

Our yummy Black Cherry Marshmallows are sweet, soft, springy and fluffy pillows of deliciousness.

These homemade marshmallows are easy and so much better than store-bought. 

To keep marshmallows fresh, set the opened marshmallows in a container with a tight-fitting lid or in a freezer-safe, Ziploc plastic bag. Avoid packing too many marshmallows into the container or bag because it will squish them together. Seal the container or bag securely. Then store the bag in the freezer.

To use the marshmallows, remove the bag from the freezer and set them on the counter for 10-15 minutes at room temperature before using them so they can defrost. If the marshmallows stick together, sprinkle a dash of icing sugar or cornstarch in the bag and shake to coat them. The marshmallows should break apart.

In addition, you can also try making these marshmallows using our amazing range of Natural Flavoured Icing Sugars!

35g Cornflour
200g Granulated White Sugar
200g Liquid Glucose
3 Gelatine Sachets
250g of Sugar and Crumbs Black Cherry Icing Sugar
Vegetable Oil for brushing


1. Fill a jug with 180ml of warm water. Empty the contents of the gelatine sachets and whisk until dissolved. Stand to the side.

2. Line a baking tin (8x12in) with clingfilm and brush with the vegetable oil.

3. In a heavy based pan combine the granulated sugar, 200g of the Sugar and Crumbs Black Cherry natural Flavoured Icing Sugar (or any flavour of your choice), all the liquid glucose and 3 tablespoons of water. Bring to the boil stirring occasionally until its melted or until the mixture reaches 112c. ( dont worry if you don’t have a thermometer. Just stir until it bubbles and then let it bubble for a further 5 minutes stirring all the time).

4. Pour into a mixing bowl and whisk on a low setting. After a few minutes add the gelatine you prepared earlier and increase the speed of the whisk to a medium setting. Whisk for 10-12 minutes until the mixture has increased in size and reached a thick marshmallowy consistency.

5. Meanwhile melt the conserve/jam in a pan over a medium heat for a few minutes then set aside.

6. Tip the marshmallow mixture into the prepared tin and stir in the conserve with a small spoon a little at a time to create a swirly pattern.

7. Cover the tin with clingfilm and leave to set at room temperture for 4-6 hours or overnight.
