Roasted, Toasted Marshmallows At-Home, Indoors or Out

Roasted, Toasted Marshmallows At-Home, Indoors or Out

It's more than just an ooey, gooey marshmallow, it's memories made in a delicious moment. The smell of the smoke and toasted marshmallow, the flicker of light, the careful turning of the skewer to achieve the perfect roast. Even if you can't escape to the woods you can still enjoy the magic of a perfectly roasted, ooey gooey marshmallow at home.

Our marshmallows & s’mores can be made at home in either your oven, toaster oven, culinary torch, or mini fire pot. Because we don't use corn syrup, high fructose corn syrup, or other high potency sweeteners, our marshmallows will not burn easily or turn into a puddly goo. Here are five ways, involving flames and flameless options, to roast marshmallows without relying on an outdoor fire.

Oven Roasted Marshmallows

Set your oven or toaster oven to high or broil and line a baking sheet with parchment paper and roast away, it's as easy as one, two, three.

  1. Set the oven to Broil
  2. Arrange the marshmallows on a baking sheet, leaving one to two inches between mallows. If you're making s'mores, we recommend placing the cookie on the baking sheet and top each one with a marshmallow. Do not place the second cookie on top, leave it open-face.
  3. Toast in the oven for 1.5 - 2 minutes or until toasted golden brown.
Air Fryer Roasted Marshmallows

Roasting marshmallows in an air fryer is another simple and effective way to achieve a gooey and toasted treat.

  1. Preheat air fryer to around 375°F and line the air fryer basket with aluminum foil and with spacing, place the marshmallows onto the foil.
  2. Cook for 3-5 minutes or until the marshmallows are golden brown.
Stovetop Roasted Marshmallows

Use a gas stove open flame. Skewer the marshmallow on a long fork, metal skewer, or marshmallow roasting stick, and carefully hold it over the open flame. Rotate the marshmallow to evenly roast it until it reaches your desired level of golden-brown deliciousness. 

Roasting Marshmallows with a Kitchen Torch

Using a kitchen torch, also known as a culinary torch, is a great way to roast a marshmallow and tastes closest to a traditional campfire marshmallow. This is how we roast our marshmallows when we are at pop-ups or catering an event. Simply secure a marshmallow at the end of a skewer, fork, or knife and brûlée the marshmallow on all sides until toasted. If you’re making s’mores, place the marshmallow on top of the cookie and chocolate and toast the marshmallow.

Outdoor Grill

Another fantastic DIY fire pit-esque option is using a gas or charcoal grill. To roast marshmallows, all you need to do is thread the marshmallow onto a metal skewer or marshmallow roasting stick, and then position it over the grill. Gradually rotate the marshmallow to ensure even roasting until it reaches the perfect golden-brown hue you desire.

And, of course, there's nothing quite like a freshly toasted marshmallow that's been roasted over an open flame outdoors or in. We recommend slow, continuous roation to achieve the perfect golden-brown roast.
