Marshmallow is a candy that is made of sugar or corn syrup, water, gelatin that has been pre-softened in hot water, dextrose, and flavorings, whipped to a spongy consistency. Marshmallows are used in several types of candies, on foods, and on some drinks such as hot chocolate.
The weight of a single portion of marshmallows is about 28 grams (four large marshmallows or a half cup of mini marshmallows)
