Want to Avoid Sticky Marshmallows? Try This Storage Hack!

Marshmallows get sticky in an opened bag because moisture fills their air pockets, making them collapse. To keep them fresh:

  • set the opened bag in a container with a tight-fitting lid or in a freezer-safe plastic bag
  • avoid packing too many marshmallows together
  • seal the container securely 
  • store in the freezer for up to four months

To use them, remove the bag from the freezer and set them on the counter for 10-15 minutes at room temperature before using so they can defrost.

Great tip, Kathy Widenhouse! I keep marshmallows in the panty a lot because of my grandson. With Texas humidity, they don't last long! Will try this.
