Vegetarian (but not healthy) marshmallow Peeps recipe

vegetarian marshmallow peepsNothing says happy Easter like biting the heads off of some homemade vegetarian marshmallow chicks and bunnies — except for maybe doing so after sending your homemade Peeps to yoga.

The original homemade peeps recipe on The Kitchn calls for:

7 1/2 teaspoons unflavored gelatin (*see below for vegetarian gelatin substitutes)
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Butter for greasing pans (and your fingers)
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon powdered sugar
Sanding sugars
Food coloring
Smoked sesame seeds (for eyes of Peeps)

Stand mixer
Medium–sized pot
Candy thermometer
2 cake pans (or a pie pan or sheet pan would do fine)
Cookie cutters

Instead of using the unflavored gelatin and the granulated sugar, one commenter on The Kitchn’s post left a very helpful tip on how to make this recipe vegetarian. They said, “Use agar agar substituted 1:1 for the gelatin and make sure to switch to vegan sugar (regular granulated sugar is often purified through bone char)”.

More info on using agar agar, and other vegetarian gelatin substitutes, from PETA.

Head on over to The Kitchn to get the full instructions for this recipe, but do you think it’d be one you’d like to tackle?

    Er….. Gelatin is made from hooves, bones, etc…. This is NOT veggie safe!

  • Fiberveg1

    Gelatin is NOT vegetarian!  It’s made from rendered animal parts – usually pig skin in the U.S.

    uh, you guys didn’t read the entire post.  He’s not recommending the use of gelatine.
