True Lime Marshmallows


True Lime is a fun addition to the classic marshmallow. With endless possibilities, this sweet treat is especially delicious in hot chocolate, or roasted over the fire on your next camping trip! Recipe submitted by Cooking With Caitlin.


1 cup water
3 packages gelatin (unflavored)
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup corn syrup
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 packets True Lime
Powdered sugar

  1. Divide the cool water into half. Add 1/2 cup of the water into the bowl of a stand mixer with the powdered gelatin. Let sit and proof for at least 15 minutes.
  2. As the gelatin proofs, add the sugar, corn syrup, other 1/2 cup of water, and pinch of salt to a large sauce pot. Turn to high heat. Let the sugar melt and bring it all to a boil. Let it boil at 240 degrees for 8 minutes.
  3. Once the mixture is ready, pour slowly over the proofed gelatin in the mixing bowl and with the whisk attachment on your stand mixer, whisk together for 15 minutes.
  4. Add vanilla, True Lime, and whisk together until the flavors are completely incorporated.
  5. Grease a baking dish on all sides. Pour in the marshmallow mixture and smooth out with the back of a spoon.
  6. Let sit for a couple hours to set. Right before slicing the marshmallows, dust the top with powdered sugar. Have extra powdered sugar nearby.
  7. Cut the marshmallows into your favorite shapes and dust all exposing sides with extra powdered sugar so that they don’t stick together.
  8. Enjoy!

Use marshmallows to make s’mores, or turn them into a two-bite version of key lime pie. Dip each marshmallow into melted white chocolate and roll it in graham cracker crumbs. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
