Bacon-Infused Marshmallow S'mores

These marshmallows are infused with real bacon flavor. They're awesome on their own or in some hot chocolate, but especially in a s'more!

Homemade Bacon-Infused Marshmallows  

As prepared by The Food in my Beard

S’mores are my all-time favorite dessert.


They’re only a few bites, perfectly balanced, interactive, and best of all – completely delicious.

I’ve tried to improve upon the classic graham, chocolate, and burnt marshmallow equation with things like peanut butter, caramel, and ice cream, but nothing beat the original.

Until now, I thought it was impossible to improve a classic s’more. That’s because until now, I had never put bacon into a s’more!

That’s right! This Bacon-Infused Marshmallow S’more finally improves upon the original! It brings a nice, salted caramel-type flavor to the table, and will really wow your friends at the next campfire.

 

Pulsing bacon in blender

First, cook your bacon and add it to the food processor along with some of the bacon fat.

 

Bacon mixed with milk, gelatin and sugar

The crumbled bacon mixed with milk and some gelatin does not look appetizing…at all! Heated sugar brought to a soft ball stage gets mixed with this and whipped to form the marshmallow.

 

Viscous marshmallow mix

Viscous!

 

Pouring into pan

Pour this over a powdered sugar-cornstarch mixture to prevent sticking.

 

Cutting into cubes 1

When it hardens, you can cut out little cubes. You need to use plenty of the powdered sugar mixture to keep everything from sticking.

 

Bacon marshmallow cubes

They’re pretty good as is…

Bacon-Infused Marshmallow S'mores

Ingredients

4
ounces bacon
1/2
cup milk
3
packets unflavored gelatin
1 1/2
cups sugar
1
cup corn syrup
1
teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4
cup cornstarch
1/2
cup powdered sugar
Nature
Valley Dark Chocolate Granola Thins

Directions

  • 1 Cook the bacon on medium heat to render the fat and crisp them up. Pour the bacon and fat into a food processor. Pulse the bacon to crumble.
  • 2 Pour the milk into the food processor and blend until well combined. Put the mixture into the fridge to cool. Once fully cooled, it should be slightly solidified. Pour it into the bowl of a stand mixer, and mix with the gelatin.
  • 3 Meanwhile, put the sugar, corn syrup, and 2/3 cup of water onto the stove with a candy thermometer. Cook while stirring until the sugar has melted. Stop stirring and bring to 240 degrees F.
  • 4 With the mixer on low, pour the hot sugar mixture into the milk/bacon mixture. Crank it up and mix on high for about 15 minutes until it is much lighter in color and has doubled in size.
  • 5 Mix the cornstarch and powdered sugar together. Line the bottom of a 6x9 pan with parchment or plastic wrap. Cover with some of the sugar and cornstarch mixture. Pour your marshmallow mixture onto the powdered sugar. Top with more and refrigerate uncovered until hardened, about three hours.
  • 6 Cut into 1.5 inch marshmallows and lightly coat with more of the sugar and cornstarch mixture.
  • 7 To make s'mores, roast your marshmallows and place between two of the granola thins!
