Stir your mixture well, or else you’ll be left with marshmallow chunks! Though, that wouldn’t be too bad, would it?

How do I find vegan marshmallows?

Most marshmallows contain gelatin. So, we’ve developed our own vegan recipe! Vegan Marshmallow Recipe! They’re delicious and quite easy to make.


If you’re looking to buy some vegan marshmallows in-store, look for the Dandies brand. They make all-vegan marshmallows. If you have a Trader Joe’s near you, their store brand of marshmallows is also vegan.
