Marshmallow Frogs

This recipe was inspired by Bunnys and Birds by Martha Stewart, Frogs make so much sense for Passover.


  • Ready Time : 0 min



  • Vegetable oil cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon confectioners' sugar
  • 2 envelopes (1/4 ounce each) gelatin (1 tablespoon plus 1 1/2 teaspoons)
  • 2/3 cup cold water, plus 1/2 cup room-temperature water
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • Fine green sanding sugar, for sprinkling and rolling or green food coloring


Coat a 9 x 13 inch baking baking sheet with cooking spray, and dust with confectioners’ sugar, tap out any extra.  Sprinkle gelatin over cold water in the bowl of a mixer. Let stand for 5 minutes to soften.

Meanwhile, heat granulated sugar and room-temperature water in a saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring, until sugar dissolves. Wash down sides of pan with a wet pastry brush. Cook until syrup reaches 238 degrees on a candy thermometer. Stir syrup into softened gelatin, and keep stirring for a few minutes to cool.

Whisk on medium-high speed until soft peaks form, 8 to 10 minutes. Spread mixture into baking sheet using a spatula; sprinkle with sanding sugar. Let stand for 1 hour to set.
Cut out marshmallows using a frog cookie cutter and roll cut sides in sanding sugar to coat.

If you can’t find green sanding sugar, mix a few drops of green food coloring with 1 cup sugar and seal in a container,  shake up until the sugar turns green.

This recipe is more of a light and fluffy marshmallow, similar to a peep.

    • Originally I bought my online somewhere, cause I didn’t know where to find it, but I actually lost mine and just got a new set of them from Melissa who blogs at Lilmisscakes.com and sells custom made cookie cutters. Try emailing her.
