I meant to make fruit snacks with the gelatin I had purchased, but ended up with an impromptu batch of marshmallows instead (I put the gelatin in water instead of juice the first time). I use this recipe http://thecoconutmama.com/2011/05/homemade-marshmallows-2/ because it had the option of using coconut sugar. It also does not contains any corn syrup, you make your own sugar syrup. I had tried making marshmallows without corn syrup previously by substituting with a sugar and water combination that I found as an alternative to corn syrup in recipes, but the texture ended up being a little off. This method makes for a more marshmallowy texture.
I used the homemade sugar syrup, coconut sugar, and I made my marshmallows cocoa flavored by adding 1/3 cup of cocoa powder to the gelatin mix. Marshmallows are fun to make and to watch grow into sticky puffy clouds in the mixer. I also put cocoa into the powdered sugar/arrowroot dusting mixture. I used 4 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 2 tablespoons arrowroot powder, and 1/2 a cup of powdered sugar. I didn't follow the directions exactly for last part of the recipe. I greased a 9x13 inch pan with coconut oil and then generously dusted it with the cocoa sugar mixture. I spread the marshmallow in the pan and then generously dusted the top with more mixture. I reserved some mix for cutting the marshmallows. This method works well for me as far as ease of getting the marshmallows out of the pan after they set.
