Gluten free, dairy free, egg free, nut free, additive free, naturally sweetened marshmallows!
The other day I decided I really should work out a Thermomix version of honey-sweetened marshmallows to share with my Quirky Cooking for Gut Health Program members for Easter.

In subsequent testing, I managed to improve the recipe so the mixture is fluffier, resulting in fluffier marshmallows. See instructions in recipe for achieving fluffy marshmallow awesomeness!)
Homemade, honey-sweetened, dairy free Rocky Road
After a day or so of testing, I have marshmallows coming out of my ears… which may not be such a good idea, as I try to keep the sweet stuff to a minimum around here, or save them for special treats! So some are going into the freezer (maybe if I hide them really well, they’ll last ’til Easter"""); and some are being given away. Although I must admit, I kept the rocky road close by.
I didn’t think I really cared that much for rocky road. Until I made this one. Then I was like, “WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE"&q...
