  • Large marshmallows
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • Oil for frying
  • Powdered sugar, for dusting (optional)
  • Chocolate sauce or caramel sauce, for dipping (optional)


1. Prepare the Marshmallows:

  1. Remove the large marshmallows from the package and set them aside.

2. Make the Batter:

  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the milk, egg, and vegetable oil until smooth.
  3. Gradually pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, whisking continuously, until a smooth batter forms. The batter should be thick enough to coat the marshmallows.

3. Heat the Oil:

  1. In a deep fryer or heavy-bottomed pot, heat oil to 350°F (175°C). Make sure there is enough oil to fully submerge the marshmallows.

4. Coat and Fry the Marshmallows:

  1. Using a fork or skewer, pierce each marshmallow and dip it into the batter until fully coated, allowing any excess batter to drip off.
  2. Carefully lower the coated marshmallow into the hot oil, using the fork or skewer to release it if necessary. Fry in batches to avoid overcrowding the fryer.
  3. Fry the marshmallows for 1-2 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy on the outside.

5. Drain and Serve:

  1. Once the marshmallows are deep golden brown, use a slotted spoon or tongs to remove them from the oil and transfer them to a plate lined with paper towels to drain excess oil.
  2. Repeat the coating and frying process with the remaining marshmallows.

6. Serve and Enjoy:

  1. Dust the Deep Fried Marshmallows with powdered sugar, if desired, for an extra touch of sweetness.
  2. Serve the marshmallows hot, with chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, or your favorite dipping sauce on the side for dipping.
