Just be warned, this recipe is not difficult but you do have to juggle about 4 things at once. So if you can get a helper in the kitchen, it would definitely make things easier!

I am a huge fan of eggnog. So when I was considering making homemade marshmallows, then realized that I could make homemade eggnog marshmallows… my brain just about exploded. In happiness! These marshmallows are sweet and delicious and add a great pop of eggnog to a cup of cocoa.

When it is really cold, I love to grab a cup of hot cocoa. And what is hot cocoa without marshmallows?? These eggnog marshmallows are amazing!



  • 2.25 ounces envelopes 0.75 oz total unflavored gelatin
  • 2/3 cup eggnog; divided
  • 1 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/3 cup corn syrup
  • 4 egg whites
  • Powdered sugar; for coating
  • 1 tablespoon nutmeg; optional
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon; optional


  1. Line a 9×13-inch baking dish with aluminum foil. Spray foil with cooking oil and dust with powdered sugar.
  2. In a small bowl, pour gelatin over 1/3 cup cold eggnog. Allow gelatin to soften.
  3. Combine 1/3 cup eggnog, corn syrup, and sugar in a medium sauce pan. Place a candy thermometer into the pan and heat over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Heat until 240 degrees F.
  4. While sugar mixture heats, place egg whites into a stand mixer and, using the whisk attachment, beat on high until fluffy, white, and stiff peaks are formed (about 5-7 minutes).
  5. Transfer egg whites from mixer to a separate bowl and set aside. Put eggnog/gelatin mixture into stand mixture.
  6. Once sugar mixture reaches 240 degrees, immediately remove from heat and slowly pour down side of mixing bowl with speed set to low, combining with gelatin mixture. Increase mixer speed to high and beat until it turns white and sticky.
  7. Using a spatula, fold in egg whites. Scoop into baking dish and sprinkle with nutmeg and cinnamon. Allow to set overnight.
  8. Once set, pull out the aluminum foil and cut with a large knife coated in powdered sugar. If marshmallows continue to stick to each other, toss cut pieces in powdered sugar. Enjoy!

  1. I anxiously await the arrival of egg nog every holiday season. Love the idea of egg nog marshmallows

  2. These sound amazing! I made them to go along with hot cocoa in a jar. However I just made them and turned out clumpy almost reminds me of tapioca (spelling?) what did I do wrong?
