The Marshmallow is a confection that, in its modern form, typically consists of sugar or corn syrup, water, gelatin that has been softened in hot water, dextrose, and flavorings, whipped to a spongy consistency.


Marshmallows were originally made from the plant marsh mallow, which is native to Africa. It is possible to make marshmallows without gelatin by making them the traditional way, by using powdered marsh mallow root (or by boiling chopped marshmallow roots in water), egg whites, cane sugar, and vanilla extract, although marshmallow root may be difficult to obtain.
