Vegan Mocha Marshmallows

The first time you bite into these fluffy vegan mocha marshmallows, you'll be convinced that marshmallows can be enjoyed all year round. We're not gonna lie, this recipe is a bit time intensive, but they're well-worth the effort. We take these to the next level with cold-brewed coffee, maple syrup and top them with a melty square of dark coffee chocolate. 

smores in the making

Did you know most marshmallows are made with animal fat? The main ingredient in marshmallows is gelatin, which is a protein that comes from animals, usually pigs. It's not explicitly labeled as an animal product, so the average consumer might not catch it.

But marshmallow-loving vegans can rejoice with this recipe. We made these marshmallows using a magical vegan ingredient called aquafaba...which is a fancy word for the liquid in a can of chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans). 

The starchy liquid is a great binder directly from the can, but what really makes it magical is that it whips and creates a stiff, fluffy foam, just like egg whites. 

Anyway, enough with the technicalities. It's time to sink your teeth into these melt-in-your-mouth treats elevated with the smooth chocolatey goodness of Verse Chocolate.
