The holidays are over but it’s still freezing outside (or at least it is here in Canada). With this weather, the only thing that can be comforting is a good hot chocolate! So I made cardamom spiced marshmallows to add a twist to the traditional drink.


  • 1/2 cup sugar (can be swapped for palm or coconut sugar)
  • 1 1/4 tbs powdered Gelatine
  • 1 tsp cardamom seeds
  • 3/4 cup water
  • powdered sugar


  1. Line a loaf pan with parchment paper and sprinkle powdered sugar over
  2. In a saucepan on a medium heat combine half the water, cardamom and sugar. Bring to a boil and allow to simmer for 5 mins, and strain (you can test it at this point to see if you’d like a stronger flavor).
  3. In a large bowl add gelatine and remaining cold water together and make a paste.
  4. Add to infused water and mix  until homogenous, then allow to cool to room temperature.
  5. Beat gelatine mix on high speed until very stiff and hard peaks form (about 10 minutes).
  6. Poor mix into prepared pan.
  7. Allow to chill in the fridge for an hour.
  8. Slice into desired size and serve.


I really enjoy making a sugar-free hot chocolate and adding a 1/2 tsp. of cinnamon and a large cardamom marshmallow for the right amount of sugar and spice.


I hope you enjoy this recipe!
