Toasted Coconut Marshmallows + Weekly Menu


So, those floating coconut things in my Skinny Hot Cocoa were these Toasted Coconut Marshmallows. Admittedly, they look a little odd. That said, they also may be the best thing to cross my lips in quite some time. No, really.

I’m easy to please and all, but I assure you that if you love coconut these are an absolute-must make. If you don’t own a stand mixer (the only catch to marshmallow-making is the necessity for a stand mixer), you should immediately forward this to someone you love so they can make them for you. Or, you could always borrow…or even use this recipe as an excuse to purchase a stand mixer (because really, that’s what I would do).


The day I made these marshmallows happened to be on a day we had friends coming over to watch Illini basketball. Mr. Prevention’s friend saw the pan of these odd-looking treats on the counter and just had to ask what they were.

After he shared not being fond of coconut, I insisted still that he try one. Needless to say, I saw a row of Toasted Coconut Marshmallow slowly disappear as the evening wore on. If any recipe were to convert a coconut-hater, this would be it.

Alas, no such luck with Mr. Prevention as of yet…simply because he refuses to try them. I have since decided I am 100% okay with this because I love having these around to curb my sweet tooth with very little damage done. Plus, they stay good for WEEKS in an air-tight container at room temperature.


I was planning to ship some of these to my brother who, like myself, goes ga-ga for coconut. But I decided not to share (don’t judge me, please!). When I make my next batch, maybe I will be so kind.

Because there will be a next time…and maybe I will share.

  9. I made marshmallows once in the summer when matt and I went camping in Tobermory. I thought it would be sweet to have sores with homemade graham crackers and marshmallows.
    But then the marshmallows melted in the car :/ and we didn’t have any back ups. Such a bummer. At least we had banana boats.
