Dehydrated marshmallows make a great treat! Follow my homemade marshmallow recipe then use this recipe to dehydrate little morsels of goodness all for yourself.
Can homemade marshmallows get any better? Sure then can! Just dehydrate some! It’s not easy to take a snack of regular marshmallows with you when you are on the go but a little baggie of these delightful morsels make running around town almost enjoyable.
These little gems are easy to make in your dehydrator and can be used all different kinds of ways. Here are just a few ideas of what you can add them to:
- Hot Chocolate
- Coffee, in place of sweetener
- Cakes or Cupcakes
- Homemade Popcorn
The list can go on and so can I but let’s get to making some of these shall we?
The whole family enjoyed the package I gave them and are ready for more. It was funny how excited they were when they heard what I was making! Of course, Gigi has an amazing sense of knowing right when to turn up for a taste test so she was the first to give her seal of approval.
While you can make these with store bought marshmallows, making your own homemade ones taste SO much better and really are simple to do. Just follow my recipe here and watch the video if you need an extra understanding of how to.

Cut marshmallows into whatever size you would like to have. I did both large and small cuts and turns out most everyone prefered the smaller size. Experiment for yourself. I didn't notice a difference in texture once they were all done.
Using your dehydrators instructions: set temperature to 130°.
If your dehydrator has a timer like mine, set for 4 hours or just set whatever timer you have. If you are dehydrating LARGE marshmallows you will have to run your machine 6+ hours.
You'll know they are done when, once cooled, you can squeeze and shatter the marshmallow into bits of powder. If they have some give and don't break, pop them back in for a bit longer.
Let cool and then pop into mason jars or using a foodsaver device, seal into air tight bags. Don't store them while there are still warm… however DO try tasting one while they are still dehyrating. Slightly crunchy, slightly melty…oh so good.
Store in airtight containers or bags for up to a year.
