marshmallows from scratch

How extra can I be?

This month has been spent with A LOT of time in the kitchen. I wanted to try something different. After scrolling through Pinterest and internet recipe sites I decided to try my hand at some homemade marshmallow.

My review: these are divine little sugar blossoms that are easily addictive. They only take about 30min to make aside from setting time. I was truly surprised by the simplicity of the recipe.

This may have just become a new holiday staple.

2c Sugar

1/3c Light Corn Syrup

1/2c Cornstarch

1c Powder Sugar

1c Water

3 packets Knox Unflavored Gelatin

1t Vanilla

  • In a stand up mixer add 1/2c cold water + gelatin powder.
  • Do NOT mix.
  • let sit 8-10min to bloom.
  • Meanwhile add sugar, corn syrup, and 1/2c to a pot of water. Cook on medium- high heat until sugar is dissolved and mixture reaches 240*F. Add vanilla.
  • Turn on mixer to a slow stir and slowly add sugar syrup to the gelatin.
  • Turn to medium speed and let mix until the marshmallow begins to turn fluffy and white and shiny. This point should resemble meringue.
  • Scoop marshmallow into a well greased 9×13 pan (I lined first with wax paper). Do this quickly as it tends to set up fast.
  • Mix cornstarch and powder sugar together and use half to coat top of marshmallow with the mixture. Cover and let sit overnight.
  • The next morning use a well oiled knife to cut your cubes. If you’d like you can use cookie cutters to create shapes. Once cut, toss in the rest of the cornstarch/sugar mixture to avoid sticking.
  • These will stay good for 2 weeks in an airtight container.

Be prepared to never be able to eat another store bought processed marshmallow again.
