Ok.. My roommate is sitting here eating Lucky Charms. Now.. I generally don't get cravings for non-vegan food.. But it's been a while since I've had some of those little charms...<br><br><br><br>
Does anyone have any good ideas for vegan marshmallows? Preferably, um, small ones that can be sprinkled over cereal? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

wow, I am not sure. But I do understand. The other day I really wanted something marshmallow after watching a little girl I was babysitting eat a bowl of lucky charms... Marshmallows used to be one of my favorite foods. I found some marshmallow fluff and spread a ton on a graham cracker. Mmmmm.<br><br><br><br>
But sorry, no, I do not know any ideas of little marshmallows for cereal... good luck. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

Vegetarian Times has a recipe! It involves cutting them up, so I'm sure you can but them small enough! I shall type it up for ya. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)"><br><br><br><br>
Ingredients:<br><br>
1 Tbs. plus 1 tsp. agar-agar powder<br><br>
1 cup cold water<br><br>
1 3/4 cups granulated sugar<br><br>
3/4 cup light corn syrup<br><br>
1 tbs. vanilla extract<br><br>
1/4 cup cornstarch<br><br>
1/4 cup confectioners sygar<br><br><br><br>
1. Soak agar-agar in 1/2 cup cold water until water is absorbed and powder is completely wet, about 10 minutes<br><br><br><br>
2. Meanwhile, combime 1/2 cup water, 1 3/4 cups sugar, and 3/4 bup corn syrup in a saucepan and bring to a boil, stirring constantly over medium heat and taking care to prevent boiling over. Reduce heat slightly and continue cooking and stirring until sugar misture thickens and forms strand, or ball in cold water. Immediately remove pan from heat and set aside.<br><br><br><br>
3. Heat agar-agar over medium heat and stir until agar-agar softes and dissolves. Spoon into bowl of mixer. Add vanilla extract and, with beaters on high speed, slowly pour hot sugar mixture onto agar-agar. COntinue beating on high speed for about 10 minutes, or until mixture turns white.<br><br><br><br>
4. combine cornstarch, and confectioners sugar in bowl. Generously sprinkle an 8-inch round baking pan with half of cornstarch mixture. Pour sugar-agar mixture into pan. Sprinkle top with more cornstarch and sugar to coat well.<br><br><br><br>
5. After marshmallows firm up, slice into pieces, wrap in plastic, and store in airtight container in refrigerator, or serve.<br><br><br><br>
Enjoy, hope this helps! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">
