- Moon Milk Ingredients:
- 3 cups – whole milk
- 1 tablespoon – pure maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon – vanilla extract
- pinch – nutmeg
- marshmallows, see below for homemade
- Homemade Marshmallow Ingredients:
- 3/4 ounce – unflavored gelatin (3 packets)
- 3/4 cup – cold water, divided
- 2 cups – sugar
- 2/3 cup – light corn syrup
- 1/4 teaspoon – salt
- 1 tablespoon – vanilla or almond extract
- 1/4 cup – powdered sugar
Moon Milk Directions:
In a medium sauce pan, bring milk to a low boil. Add in maple syrup, stirring for 1 minute, then add in nutmeg and vanilla extract. Serve with marshmallows.
Line a 9×9-inch square pan with plastic wrap and lightly grease it with cooking spray. Add 1/2 cup cold water to the bowl of an electric mixer. Sprinkle gelatin powder over the water. Let soak for 10 minutes while you continue with the next step.
In a medium sauce pan combine sugar, corn syrup, and remaining 1/4 cup water over medium-high heat. Whisk until sugar is just dissolved and bring to a rapid boil. Once the liquid starts boiling, stop whisking and set a timer for 1 minute.
Pour the boiling mixture from the sauce pan into the bowl of the stand mixer. Turn it on low and work up to high speed. Allow to beat for 10-12 minutes until fluffy and just warm (no longer hot). Beat in the extract until incorporated.
Thoroughly grease your hands and a rubber spatula or spoon with cooking spray and transfer mixture into your prepared pan in an even layer. Grease a second sheet of plastic wrap and gently pat into place on top of the marshmallow mixture to create a seal so it doesn’t dry out.
Allow to set for 3-4 hours (or up to overnight) at room temperature. Sprinkle a cutting board with powdered sugar, transfer the marshmallow to the cutting board and sprinkle more powdered generously over the top and sides.
Use a sharp knife to cut into squares, toss with more powdered sugar. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
