Toasted Marshmallow Syrup adds a caramelized, toasted sugar, hint of smokiness to coffee drinks, s'mores martinis or hot chocolate.
This is an easy recipe and one your kids could help you make while supervised.
You're making a simple syrup, toasting marshmallows then combining the two until the marshmallows have completed melted down into the syrup.
Note: you will have some leftover crispy marshmallow bits in the syrup that you'll strain out before putting the syrup in a jar.
Refrigerator simple syrup, even flavored syrup, for up to a month.

Step By Step for Making This Marshmallow Syrup
I made this syrup to put in my s'mores martini as a marshmallow vodka substitute.
This flavored simple syrup would also be a good sweetener in an Espresso Martini.
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 8 ounces water
- six to eight toasted marshmallows (not minis)
- Add sugar and water to a small or medium sauce pot
- Bring to a simmer over low to medium heat on your range, stirring occasionally until sugar has dissolved. Turn off burner.
- Meanwhile toast marshmallows--ideally over a campfire or an outdoor grill so you get smoky flavor but over a burner on your stove would work too. Be careful and have a pan of water or something to douse the marshmallows should they catch fire.
- Add the toasted marshmallows to the simple syrup in the sauce pot.
- Cook over low heat stirring occasionally until marshmallows have completely melted into the syrup. You'll likely still have marshmallow bits that haven't dissolved completely, that's okay.
- Place a strainer over a glass measuring cup or a glass jar.
- Pour the toasted marshmallow syrup slowly in the strainer to catch any bits from going into the syrup.
- Let the syrup cool then put a lid on it.
- Store syrup in the refrigerator for up to one month.
Store flavored simple syrups in refrigerator for up to one month.
If you don't want to toast the marshmallows before adding them to the simple syrup, you may skip that step but it will taste better if you do.
