Keeping Marshmallows Fresh: Kitchen Tip

Kitchen Tip Button

We don’t use marshmallows often so it’s not unusual for a few of them to get used from a bag and the rest sit there for a long time.  Then when someone wants a marshmallow again, they are dried out or all stuck together.


I have read that storing marshmallows in the freezer prevents this from happening.  I haven’t actually tried it yet, though.  Have you?  I’d like to know how well it works.

    I have tried this tip and it does work. I have the same problem as you in that I don’t use marshmallows very frequently. I still buy a big bag, but just store them in the freezer. I haven’t noticed any differences in texture or taste from doing this.

    I’ve found that if you buy the store brand they stick together worse. I buy Jet Puffed most of the time now and as long as the package is tied shut, they don’t stick together.

    Oh my I have done this for years– when kids were little they would just go get one out and use in hot choc or what ever we were doing, SO yes it works- the big or minis or jumbos just p0ut in your freezer in you kitchen same bag you buy them in,
