Homemade Marshmallow Recipe


Have you ever tried making homemade marshmallows?  It's unbelievably easy, and tastes a lot better than the chalky tasting store-bought kind!

Here are the ingredients you'll need: – light corn syrup AND sugar – water – gelatin – vanilla – cornstarch and powdered sugar – salt (just a pinch) – non-stick spray for the dish/pan

Pour 3 packets of unflavored gelatin in a bowl followed by a 1/2 cup of water.  Let it sit while it magically turn into jello-like mini pearls while you make the sugar mixture.

While your gelatin is expanding … pour 1/2 cup of water, sugar and corn syrup in a small sauce pan on MEDIUM heat.

Stir briefly with wooden spoon, lower the heat to low/medium, then let it come to a low boil.

CAREFULLY and slowly pour the sugar and syrup into a large bowl on top of your gelatin.

You can use a big fancy schmancy mixer or just a hand mixer. Mix for 12 minutes. Yes, I said mix for 12 minutes.

Oh, just you wait. When it goes from clear liquid to white marshmallow fluff, it feels like magic. The next step is coving your pan with confectiners' sugar and cornstarch.

Add the sugar and cornstarch mixture, cover with plastic wrap, and move around to completely coat the bottom and sides of the pan.

When the marshmallow is ready, pour into the prepared pan, spread evenly with the spatula, and dust the top with some of the remaining sugar and cornstarch mixture to lightly cover.

Allow the marshmallows to sit uncovered for at least 4 hours or overnight.

Turn the marshmallows out onto a cutting board and cut into 1-inch squares using a pizza wheel dusted with the confectioners' sugar mixture.

Once cut, lightly dust all sides of each marshmallow with the remaining sugar mixture, using additional if necessary. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.

And there you have it … HOMEMADE MARSHMALLOWS!  Enjoy in your hot chocolate, S’mores, or just as a delicious, pillowy vanilla-flavored homemade marshmallow.
