Homemade Marshmallows are yummy to eat by themselves and to put in your hot chocolate!
This recipe for Homemade Marshmallows was sent to me by FamilyFun magazine, and I thought it was a fun, unique recipe I would love to try one day! It was created by Piece of Cake blogger and author Shauna Sever.
Here’s how you make them!
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 4½ tsp. unflavored powdered gelatin
- ½ cup cold water
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup light corn syrup divided
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/8 tsp. salt
- 2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 1½ cups confectioners’ sugar
- 1 cup cornstarch or potato starch
Lightly coat an 8-by-8-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray.
Whisk together the gelatin and cold water in a bowl, and let sit for 5 minutes.
Stir together the sugar, ¼ cup of the corn syrup, water, and salt in a medium saucepan over high heat. Boil, stirring occasionally, until the temperature reaches 240°F. Meanwhile, pour remaining ¼ cup corn syrup into the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment.
Microwave gelatin mixture on high until melted, about 30 seconds. Pour it into the mixer bowl. Set the mixer speed to low and keep it running while slowly adding the cooked syrup mixture.
Increase the speed to medium and beat for 5 minutes. Increase to medium high and beat for 5 more minutes. Beat on the highest setting for 1 to 2 minutes more and beat in the vanilla; the batter will be an opaque white, fluffy, and tripled in volume. Pour it into the prepared pan; smooth it into the corners with a spatula.
Whisk together the confectioners’ sugar and corn starch to make the coating. Sift it evenly and generously over the top of the marshmallows. (Store leftover sugar mixture in an airtight container.) Let set for at least 6 hours in a cool, dry place.
Sprinkle a work surface with the sugar mixture. Use a knife to loosen the marshmallow from the edges of the pan and invert onto the surface. Top with more coating. Cut into pieces and dip the sticky edges in more of the sugar mix.
