My ds is pa and really wants to make marshmallow popcorn balls. Is there any safe one's out there? I have looked at some, but they don't have an allergy warning on the bag.

Thanks,

Jan

Thanks, it looks like Kraft-Jet Puffed are safe. Ryan will be so happy.

Campfire (Doumak) are nut free and they only make marshmellows

im assuming that since campfire only makes marshmallows that they are also tree nut and sesame free? i would like to try since they have colored ones.

Marshmallow Fluff is also safe. For kosher marshmallows, Manischewitz and Elyon brands are also okay. Elyon may be an issue for any fish allergies, though -- the gelatin is from a fish source. They don't taste like it!! Whole Foods carries them, too.

Do you mind posting how to make the popcorn balls? Thanks

Sure, here it is:

15 cups air popped popcorn 1 bag large marshmallows 1/4 cup butter 1/2 tsp vanilla

Melt marshmallows and butter over low to med. heat. I usually stir frequently. Pour over popcorn and form into balls. Then I wrap them in Handi-wrap or that non-stick wrap.

Make sure your hands are well buttered before making them into balls.

I also add a little food coloring to the marshmallows, depending on what holiday we are making them for. We usually use green for Christmas. They don't stay around long, they are yummy.

I finally found egg-free, dye-free, peanut/nut-free marshmallows! They are called Fluffy Puffs.

I'll bite........where?

We went to St. Marks area here in Florida and the guides showed us a Marsh flower. The flower is called a mallow flower. They said that they use to boil these and they would puff up ( the sugar) and these were the early marshmallows. Of course, we no longer use the flower to make these.

Just thought this was very interesting.

Thanks for the recipe. I made these tonight. I was so excited that they actually turned out. It seems everytime I am in the Kitchen it usually goes bad!HA I can't wait for my DD to try these in the morning.

Let me know if she liked them. Did you put food coloring in them?

Momcat - I haven't been able to find Fluffy Puffs anywhere on the web to see where I might buy them - do you get them at any of the chains? Anyone else know whether the other noted brands might be free of eggs and milk also? Thanks! Andy

DD is extremely sensitive to traces of egg (and pn/tn). We've used Campfire successfully. Kraft occasionally (against my better judgement) but DD has had hives twice that may or may not have been related to Kraft marshmallows. (But she is definitely NOT gelatin allergic. She's been tested.)

We found the Fluffy Puffs at Mollie Stone's and Whole Foods in the Bay Area during Passover. They are Kosher marshmallows, made in Israel I think. I didn't try to call them about their manufacturing process. I just went by the label.

I made them with green food coloring. She said what is that ugly. She is almost 3 yrs old so of course it was in a cute way. She wouldn't even give them a chance. I will have to try again without the dye. She is rotten!!!HA
