DIY Marshmallow Peeps for Dogs
- 3 Tbls Plain, Unflavored Gelatin
- 1 cup Honey
- 1 cup water (split in two)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1/4 tsp Salt
- Coconut flour for dusting
I used my Kitchen Aid mixer for this, but you can use a hand mixer. It will just take a bit longer. First, take your Gelatin, and 1/2 cup of water and put it into your mixing bowl. Stir it slightly with a spoon. While that sits, take a saucepan and put your honey, 1/2 cup of water, vanilla extract and salt into the pan. Heat on a medium to high heat, mixing constantly, until you bring the temperature of the mixture to 240 degrees Fahrenheit. This will take around 6 - 10 minutes.
Once your mixture reaches the right temperature, remove the pan, slowly and carefully pour it into you mixer while on the low setting (I used the whisk attachment for my mixer) Once it's all poured in, slowly increase the speed of your mixer being careful not to splash the hot mix all over. Once your mixer is on high, let it mix for around 10 minutes, or until you have a nice fluffy consistency.
While the fluff is mixing spray your pans lightly with Bakers Joy. I am using a Peeps silicon mold pan, and an 8x8 cake pan. This will stop the marshmallow peeps from sticking once they are set. After the mix is fluffy, you can spoon it into a pastry bag to make filling your mold easier. Whatever is left, you can pour into an 8x8 pan and cut into cubed marshmallows later.
After you have filled your pans, let them sit for at least 4 - 5 hours so that the mixture can properly set. Now you can remove the Marshmallow Peeps from the mold. They will still be sticky, so take a cutting board, and dust it with coconut flour. Lightly tap the Marshmallow Peeps in the flour to help coat the sticky parts, and that's it! You have now created Marshmallow Peeps for dogs! And yes, you can eat them too!
