What do I need to make these Low Syn Marshmallow Bars?

When we say a recipe is simple, we really mean it! All you need are just 2 ingredients.

  • Less than 5% sugar Cheerios
  • 40g of sugar-free mini marshmallows

Sugar-free mini marshmallows?!

Yup! We got ours from a specialist catering supplier, but you can pick them up from Sainsbury’s. They’re only 2.5 Syns for 25g which makes them 1 Syn per 10g.

How do you work out the Syns in these Low Syn Marshmallow Bars?

This recipe uses 40g sugar-free marshmallows which comes to 4 Syns.

We’ve used the Nestle Oat Cheerios, Less Than 5% Sugar as our HEB, just counting 4 Syns for the lot.

Or, if you prefer to Syn the Cheerios at 7.5 Syns for 40g, so it would be 11.5 syns for the lot. You could, of course, cut them into smaller pieces and enjoy them as the odd sweet treat!

How do I make these Low Syn Marshmallow Bars?

Step 1

Melt the marshmallows in a glass bowl in the microwave. This will only take 10-15 seconds!

Once melted, give it a stir. I’d recommend using a silicone spatula, as it makes the molten marshmallow easier to work with.

Step 2

Add the Cheerios to the molten marshmallows and stir well to combine. You will need to move quickly, as the marshmallow will stiffen as it cools.

If you need to, return the mix to the microwave for 5 seconds at a time, to loosen the mixture up.

Step 3

Tip the cheerio-marshmallow mix into a rectangular/square dish, and flatten. You may need to use a spoon or knife heated in water for this bit! It’ll make the mix much easier to spread.

If you run into difficulty, and the mix is too stiff, just pop it back in the microwave for 5 seconds at a time.

Step 4

Cover with clingfilm and place in the fridge to set. It’ll take 30 minutes to set, so you don’t have that long to wait to enjoy your Low Syn Marshmallow Bars!

Step 5

Gently prise the mixture away from the bowl. You will need to cut around the edge with a sharp knife first.

Tip onto a chopping board, and cut into how many pieces you like and enjoy! Michelle enjoyed hers with a cup of coffee, bravo!
