WATCH: How to Make Homemade Marshmallows

Impress everyone with a batch of homemade marshmallows!

 

Skip a trip to the candy store and make marshmallows at home. It's easier than you might think! 

 

For the sugar mixture:
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup light corn syrup
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons water
pinch of salt

 

For the gelatin:
2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
1/4 cup + 2 tablespoons water

 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 cup powdered sugar

 

1 Make the sugar mixture: In a saucepan, add granulated sugar, corn syrup, salt, and water. Stir to dissolve the sugar over high heat. Once the sugar has dissolved, bring the mixture to a boil and cook, without stirring, for about 9 minutes.

 

2 Meanwhile, mix cold water and gelatin in a separate bowl. Let soften for 5 minutes.

 

3 Slowly beat the sugar mixture into the gelatin mixture on low speed. Gradually raise speed to high and beat until the mixture is very stiff. Beat in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

 

4 Pour into a dish greased with oil and smooth the top. Set aside, uncovered, until firm, about 3 hours.

 

5 Once the marshmallow has set, mix cornstarch and powdered sugar in a bowl, and sprinkle onto a work surface. Place the marshmallow onto prepared surface and cut into cubes with a knife lightly greased with oil. Roll each marshmallow in the sugar-cornstarch mixture to coat.
