Homemade Marshmallows

Author: Ashlee Marie

  • 3 Tbsp gelatin
  • 1/3 C cold water
  • 3 C sugar
  • 1 1/2 C water
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/3 C cornstarch
  • 1/3 C powdered sugar
  1. Soak the gelatin in the 1/3 of a cup of cold water in a small bowl and set aside to swell for 10 minutes.
  2. In a large saucepan dissolve the sugar in the 1 1/2 C of water over low heat, stirring constantly.
  3. Add the swollen gelatin and dissolve.
  4. Raise the temperature and bring to a boil.
  5. Boil steadily, but not vigorously, for 15 minutes without stirring.
  6. Remove from the heat and allow to cool until lukewarm.
  7. Pour into a bowl, or mixer and add the vanilla and beat the mixture until very thick and white.
  8. Spray a 9x13 pan (or 9x9 inch pan for taller marshmallows) with bakers joy and let set
  9. Cut into squares and dust with a mixture of cornstarch and icing sugar.
Tip- I use my Cake Pop Roller to cut the marshmallow's quickly, evenly and easily!
