  • In a large mixing bowl, dissolve gelatin in 1/2 cup water, set aside
  • Combine 1/2 cup water, maple syrup or honey and salt in a medium sauce pan over medium-high heat, bring to a boil
  • Continue to boil until it reaches “soft-ball” stage or 240ºF, then remove immediately
  • Combine maple syrup/honey mixture with the gelatin in the large mixing bowl
  • Mix on high with a hand mixture until it starts forming gentle peaks, about 10 minutes, add flavor during final minute of mixing
  • Scoop the marshmallow creme into a parchment lined, 8×8 pan, use an oiled spatula to spread evenly in the pan
