Homemade Marshmallows

     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.

Homemade Marshmallows

              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.

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.

  3. Thanks for linking up to the party. I wasn't sure if you knew your blog comments are set to "no reply", so I couldn't reply to your comment. I have a tutorial on the right side bar if you'd like to read more about it.
    Take care,
