Follow the recipe for Basic Vanilla Marshmallows.
At the end of all the whipping, carefully fold in 1/4 cup sifted dry funfetti cake mix. (You can use white, vanilla, or yellow cake mix if you don’t have funfetti.) My funfetti mix didn’t have enough sprinkles, so I added some more. (If you use regular cake mix you’ll want to add about 2 tbsp sprinkles.) Just be careful not to mix it too much or the sprinkles will melt and make the whole thing look muddy.
Don’t sprinkles just make everything better?! So pretty!
When I made these, I cut out the last 2 minutes of whipping on high speed (because I thought that’s what the recipe said) but you can go the full time. Mine just came out more smooth and melt-in-your-mouth and less marshmallowy squishy. Hope that makes sense. They were still amazing though so it doesn’t really matter. 🙂
Unfortunately the picture above is the last one I got of these marshmallows. We ate them all so fast I was barely able to share and didn’t get a chance to take some good pictures! So far these are my favorite marshmallows I have made. So there will be a ‘next time’ and then I will come back and add better photos!
