Yes, You Can Make Homemade Marshmallows!

Ingredients:

  • 2 envelopes (2 Tbsp.) unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1 egg white
  • Confectioner’s sugar

Directions:

  1. Soften the gelatin in ½ cup cold water.
  2. In a 2 quart saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup and 1/3 cup water.
  3. Cook to soft ball stage (240 degrees using a candy thermometer) and stir only until the sugar dissolves.
  4. Remove from heat; stir gelatin to dissolve.
  5. Let mixture cool for 10 minutes.
  6. Beat one egg white to stiff peaks; slowly add the sugar syrup, beating on high speed with an electric mixer until the candy stands in soft peaks.
  7. Line a 12x10 inch baking dish with parchment paper; pour mixture into the dish.  Let this stand overnight. 
  8. Dust the top with confectioner’s sugar; flip marshmallow onto another sheet of parchment.
  9. Moisten the parchment to remove from the candy. 
  10.  Cut in desired size pieces/shapes.  

Yield: 1 ½ pounds

*To get taller marshmallows, use a smaller pan. It’s fun to use different cut-outs for the kids. Use on hot chocolate, coffee, or even dip in melted chocolate!
