|The finished marshmallows.|
Saturday, January 26, 2013
My husband loves marshmallows. If he opens a bag of mini-marshmallows, you can be sure the bag will be empty before he stops. He just can't help himself so when I found out you could make marshmallows at home, I just had to try it.
3 envelopes of Knox gelatine 1/2 c. cold water
1/4 c. water 1/2 tsp. salt
2/3 c. light corn syrup 2 c. sugar
1 T. vanilla powdered sugar
In a large mixing bowl, add the cold water and then sprinkle the 3 envelopes of gelatin in. Let rest for 8 minutes. While it is at rest, place the sugar, corn syrup, and 1/4 c. of water in a small pot and bring it to a boil over medium heat.
Once it has come to a boil, pour it into the mixing bowl and mix it all together at high speed.
Add in the salt and now beat for 12 1/2 minutes. Stir in the vanilla gently.
Next, butter a regular sized cake pan and then pour the marshmallow mixture into it.
Spread it out nice and pretty and place into the refrigerator or set it on the counter top overnight.
Once it is set, cut into squares and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
These come out so succulent and delicious. You won't believe the taste!
