“My sister-in-law took one bite and came running over to me asking for the recipe.”


Ingredient Quantity
Large Marshmallows 1 bag
Pancake Mix 1 cup
Water ½ cup
Vanilla Extract 1 teaspoon
Graham Cracker Crumbs 1 cup
Oil for Frying (vegetable or canola oil) Enough for frying
Powdered Sugar (optional) For dusting
Chocolate Sauce (optional) For dipping
Heat the Oil Safely: Heat the oil in a deep fryer or large pot to 375°F (190°C).
Safety Tip: Never leave hot oil unattended while heating or cooking.


Prepare the Batter: In a medium bowl, whisk together the pancake mix, water, and vanilla extract until smooth. This will be your coating batter.

Prepare the Coating: In a separate shallow bowl, place the graham cracker crumbs for easy rolling.

Coat the Marshmallows with Caution:

Marshmallow Tip: Due to the airy nature of marshmallows, they can explode when exposed to hot oil. To prevent this, you can insert a toothpick or skewer through the center of the marshmallow for better control and heat distribution.
Coating Tip: Dip each marshmallow into the batter, ensuring it’s completely coated. Then, roll the coated marshmallow in the graham cracker crumbs to evenly coat the outside.

Fry Marshmallows Carefully:

Oil Temperature Tip: Maintain the oil temperature between 350°F (175°C) and 375°F (190°C) for best results. Too high and the marshmallows can burn easily.
Fry in Small Batches: Carefully place one or two marshmallows at a time into the hot oil. Don’t overcrowd the pot to avoid lowering the oil temperature.
Drain and Enjoy:

Frying Time: Fry the marshmallows for 30-60 seconds, or until golden brown.
Draining Tip: Use a slotted spoon to remove the marshmallow from the oil and transfer it to a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil.
Serve and Enjoy Responsibly:

Cooling Tip: Let the fried marshmallows cool slightly before serving, as the inside will be very hot.
Dust and Dip (Optional): Once cool enough to handle, dust with powdered sugar and serve with chocolate sauce for dipping, if desired.
Safety Reminders:

Always monitor the oil temperature closely to avoid overheating.
Never overcrowd the pot while frying.
Use a slotted spoon to avoid splashing oil.
Keep a fire extinguisher nearby in case of accidents.
Enjoy your deep-fried marshmallows responsibly!
