A fun thing to do with kids. The marshmallows can be any flavor you want -- as long as jello comes in that flavor! An electric mixer is a must for this recipe, unless you have great stamina and patience!

Directions

  1. Dissolve jello in the boilling water in a saucepan over very low heat.
  2. Add the sugar; cook and stir just till sugar is dissolved. Do not boil.
  3. Blend in the corn syrup. Chill till slightly thickened.
  4. Beat at highest speed of electric mixer until mixture is thickened and will stand in soft peaks -- about 8 to 10 minutes.
  5. Pour into an 8-inch square pan which has been lined on sides and bottom with waxed paper and the paper greased with butter or margarine. Chill overnight.
  6. Turn firm mixture onto a board heavily dusted with confectioners' sugar. Carefully peel off waxed paper and dust surfaces heavily with sugar.
  7. Cut into 1-inch squares. You may also use small cookie cutter to cut into shapes. Be sure to dip the cutters in the sugar. Roll edges of squares or shapes in sugar.
  8. Store covered in refrigerator.

They've not yet chilled, but have appeared to work. I love this marshmallow recipe because there's no thermometer involved. I'm envisioning raspberry flavored rice crispy treats with mini-chocolate chips! Or lime & white chocolate smores!
