What is the substitution ratio for mini marshmallows to large marshmallows?
Kraft's Jet-Puffed brand claims the following conversion factor:
1 Regular Marshmallow = 13 Mini Marshmallows
That puts you at around 156 Mini Marshmallows for 12 Regulars.
This nutrition data says that:
- 1 cup of miniature marshmallows weighs 50 grams,
- 10 miniature marshmallows weigh 7 grams, and
- 1 regular marshmallow weighs 7 grams
1:10 is a bit different from Sam Ley's answer; maybe Kraft is a little off average or this data is a little off. In any case, it's helpful in that it'd let you measure: 12 large ("regular") would be 84 grams, which is almost exactly 1 2/3 cups.
Good data - I'm sure that "mini" and "regular" aren't internationally recognized SI units. ;) Somewhere in the 1:10 range is probably good for most brands, though you'll invariably have to eyeball it a bit and judge whether your dish is sufficiently mallow-y.
Thank You I found this site extremely helpful. I only had the mini marshmallows and was at loss since this was my first time having to substitute. I used the 1 2/3 cup and it worked perfectly give or take a few marsh mellows!.
