So this is one of those recipes for people who like sweet treats, but maybe don't want to make everything from scratch. There are only three components, and all of them can be ordered online. So let's take a look!

Low Carb Marshmallows - Chocolate Dipped! Three-ingredient sugar free and keto friendly treats!

Where to Buy Low Carb Marshmallows

First is the marshmallow. Netrition currently sell two kinds, so I ordered both. I've enjoyed La Nouba marshmallows for an occasional treat for years (they can be seen in my recipes for a low carb chocolate fondue (oh yes!) and my low carb hot chocolate mug cake. You can also buy them from Amazon.

This product is made in Belgium, which is fine by me but makes for a rather complicated data panel. However, I worked out that for two marshmallows the carb count is 11.64g, but the sugar alcohols are 11.52g, meaning that if you don't include sugar alcohols, you're only getting 0.12g net carbs for two marshmallows. Which is fine for most people – but the bad news is that the sweetener used is maltitol, and I know that will be a deal breaker for many of you. If not, then they have a firm texture and an attractive half-white half-pink coloring that makes them perfect for this recipe.

So let's look at the Know Brainer marshmallows. These are also available on Amazon, and for a similar price, but only as a three-pack.

The nutrition panel is MUCH easier to understand for this product, and two marshmallows are 3g net carbs, plus these treats have added collagen and MCT oils! The downside? The main sweetener is xylitol – which as you're probably aware is toxic to dogs. But the marshmallows themselves are super squishy with a pleasant vanilla taste. Although they're slightly irregular in size, I decided to use these ones!

Oh, and if neither of these suit you, you can absolutely make your own! Check out this recipe for Sugar Free Marshmallows from Wholesome Yum!

Next, the chocolate. This is much more straightforward and you can see many different low carb chocolate ideas in my article 50+ Low Carb Treats, but I went with my go-to chocolate: Lily's Original Dark, which you can buy in Whole Foods, on Amazon, or from Netrition. It's sweetened with stevia and is an excellent product!

And finally, the sprinkles. These keto sprinkles are made by Stoka – and they're fantastic! The natural colors aren't as bright as regular ones, but I rather like their muted look!

How to Make Low Carb Chocolate Dipped Marshmallows

Place the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl and cook on high for 30 seconds. Stir, then cook for another 30 seconds. Microwaves vary so just melt the chocolate in short bursts, stirring regularly. Mmmmmm melted chocolate!!!

Make yourself an assembly line: marshmallows, melted chocolate, sprinkles, and a small baking pan lined with a silicone mat or waxed paper.

Dip each marshmallow in the chocolate, then shake it a little to remove any excess chocolate.

Note: As with any recipe that includes sugar alcohols, excessive consumption is not recommended, especially if you are unfamiliar with that particular sweetener. These treats keep well in the fridge so no need to eat them in one sitting – however good they are!!!

Whichever marshmallow you choose, I'll admit that they can be a little pricey. So these sweet morsels are really only intended for special occasions!

I was super excited about the marshmallows until I went to Netrition and read the ingredient list. These marshmallows are made with maltitol, which causes an insulin response almost as high as table sugar does. It is not suitable for Keto (will knock you out of ketosis) or for those trying to control their blood sugar. I sure wish the commercial candy and treat makers would figure this out.

I provided information for two brands - check out the Know Brainer marshmallows that are sweetened with xylitol. And by the way - I agree that there should be WAY fewer products made with maltitol!
