    Question OK To Freeze Marshmallows?

    When the kids were here I had miniature marshmallows on hand for the hot cocoa. There is nearly a full bag leftover and I hate to waste it...is it possible to vacuum seal (I have a Food Saver) and freeze them? Will they thaw and be usable?

    Inquiring minds want to know...

    TIA!

    I don't keep marshmallows in the house, but ... my mother freezes them all the time and we always did growing up. If you're going to use a vacuum sealer, don't get overzealous -- you'll wind up with a bag of severely squished marshmallow goo. A ziploc with most air hand-squeezed out should be sufficient.

    What are you planning to use them for? After frozen, they are perfectly fine for munching on or to put in hot cocoa. I have never baked with them after freezing them though and not sure if that would work....but, yes, freeze away!

    Marshmallows keep well. sealed in an air-tight jar, in the cabinet.

    I keep marshmallows in the freezer all the time and use them for any recipe/drink, etc. The ziploc bag is fine or if they are already in a plastic bag, just put a twistie on it.

    Well thanks, everyone! I only use them for hot cocoa for the grandchildren. Maybe I should introduce them to Rice Krispie squares that were not made in a factory...

    They're in the freezer, in a Mason Jar, sealed in my FoodSaver. KIDDING!

    16 ounces miniature marshmallows

    1. Mix cranberries, sugar and pineapple. Let stand 2 hours.

    2. Mix whipped topping and marshmallows. Let stand 2 hours.

    3. Combine the two mixtures, refrigerate 12 hours.

    NOTES : You can use less marshmallows. Don't freeze. Will keep 1 week.
