  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cups corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

In the bowl, sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 cup cold water. Soak for 10 minutes. In a saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, and 1/4 cup water and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute. Pour boiling syrup into gelatin and mix at high speed with an electric mixer. Add the salt and beat for additional 12 minutes then add vanilla. Scrape marshmallow mixture into a 9 x 9-inch pan lined with oiled plastic wrap and spread evenly. Lightly oil hands to get mixture out easily. Then take another piece of plastic wrap and press mixture into the pan. Let marshmallows sit for a couple hours. When ready, remove from pan and dredge whole marshmallow square with confectioners’ sugar. Then cut marshmallows into 12 equal pieces with scissors. Dredge each piece of marshmallow again in confectioners’ sugar. Store in airtight container till your ready to use.

These look amazing! I saw Ina Garten from the Food Network show Barefoot Contessa a few years ago make homemade marshmallows. She made it look so easy that I decided to give them a try. Oh my goodness there is no comparison in taste to these and store bought. They are so delicious and really easy to make.She added toasted coconut to hers and I make them to give as gifts and people always want the recipe. I hope that everyone that reads your post will make these marshmallows because I think if they do they will never want to eat store bought ones again! Now after reading this I am ready to make a batch and have some S’Mores.
