"These soft, airy marshmallows taste like pumpkin pie. The recipe takes at least a full 24 hours to make, so give yourself lots of time to get everything ready. If the cocoa dredging mixture isn't sweet enough, you can sift some confectioners' sugar into it, although the bitter chocolate coating balances the very sweet marshmallow nicely." — xarrium

Yum! A fabulous tasting marshmallow! I decided to try to make marshmallows today on a whim, and this recipe is very good! I do recommend adding the pumpkin mixture to taste, I made 2 batches and the second was a little less strong, which I preferred. Thanks for giving me a little treat to give my family's pumpkins
I tried these last week...while they tasted amazing they didnt really turn out like marshmallows...kind of a cross between marshmallows and jello
I made marshmallows. Me, a candy-thermometer challenged person. I. Made. Marshmallows. And they rock. Granted, I'm sure it's easier to buy a $.99 bag of the pre-made and I *know* there is no sticky residue covering every countertop, 4 bowls, 3 spatulas, 2 hands and one KA mixer when you do.... But how often do you get the chance to eat fresh, pillowy, oh-so-soft marshmallows that taste like pumpkin pie? Try these sometime, you just may surprise yourself. I know I did.
Just made these for a Wiccan event. Very easy to make and tasted great. Will keep this recipe and will make again!
The basic marshmallow recipe is based on Thomas Keller's French Laundry restaurant marshmallow recipe (which is very adaptable to all sorts of flavors). The pumpkin part is fun and pretty, but the cocoa coating just ruins it. Makes it too dark. Next time I will omit cocoa powder and use a mix of cornstarch and powdered sugar.
***I made these again, and the marshmallows are way too moist and do not dry out! They soak up all the PS/cornstarch mixture. Liquid is sitting at the bottom of the container as they sit. Eew. I am changing the rating.
Mine didn't look anything like the picture, but they were very good.
Easy recipe to follow.
coat in powdered sugar, not cocoa powder
I scaled this down to try the recipe before I took it to my kids pumpkinfest at school and I'm glad I did! Because I could not get past the consistency.
It was more like jello than marshmallow. The flavor wasnt bad but a very odd feeling when you bite into it. I will not be making these again.
