How Many Marshmallows Are in a Bag?

There are approximately 35 large marshmallows in a regular 10.5-ounce bag of marshmallows. Each large marshmallow can be substituted in recipes with 1 tablespoon of marshmallow cream or 10 micro marshmallows.

The primary components of marshmallows are gelatin, corn syrup, egg whites, sugar, and vanilla extract. They are frequently used in dessert recipes or roasted over an open fire in the United States. Other versions include enormous marshmallows, micro marshmallows, and unique forms, in addition to the typical white, bite-sized delights. Strawberry, chocolate, peppermint, and other flavours are frequently used for themed marshmallow goods in addition to vanilla. Marshmallows are also used to make the popular seasonal confection Peeps, which are shaped and coated with coloured sugar.

Although marshmallows were originally produced from the juice of the mallow plant, which was believed to have medical virtues, gelatin eventually replaced mallow juice as the preferred thickening ingredient when it became commercially available. In the middle of the 1800s, the British and French were the first to create marshmallows. In 1948, Illinois resident Alex Doumakes began utilising a technique in which liquid marshmallow was squeezed down a tube, sprinkled with cornstarch, then sliced into bite-sized pieces, giving the confections their distinctive cylindrical shape.
