These were wonderful! i did them in 3 flavors...vanilla, almond and peppermint! To make sure they come easily out of the pan i first greased it well then layed a thick coatin of powdered sugar on it, marshmallow come right out! (Make sure you grease the side of the pan as well)

These were absolutely tremendous!! I was amazed at how easy these were and no dirtying every single dish in the kitchen to make some homemade candy. Very very gooey and sticky though, lol. Next time I might beat them a little less than 15 minutes (extremely difficult to get out of mixing bowl-had cooled off too much I believe) and I used 1 tablespoon of vanilla and it was perfect. Use a pastry cutter and walk it through to cut them. I dipped them in dark chocolate and sprinkled them with candies and they were out of this world-I will be making them for Christmas every year!

I have never made homemade Marshmellows before and they were pretty easy to make... I think that the 2 tablespoons of Vanilla was too much... I think next time I will cut back on it...

This was my first time making anything even remotely like this.I decided to substitute peppermint extract for vanilla.They ended up being a little too minty strong so I coated them all in Hersheys dark chocolate.Now they're awesome.This recipe is going to be fun to play with.

Really easy! Make sure you use 2 tablespoons of good vanilla! Also, grease the pan and coat it in powdered sugar (and some cornstarch) before you pour in the mallow to set. It really helps in taking it out!

This was so easy to make. This first time I made marshallows I nearly burned myself with the sugar but these had great directions and turned out great. I halved the recipe in fact. Also I added raspberry oil to half the marshallow and swirled in red food coloring. They were a hit and I am keeping this recipe for sure. I didn't have a candy thermotor so I just drop it in some cold water (it held its shaped, but was still pliable. What a great recipe

We love these marshmallows. The only alteration I made was to sub corn syrup for 1 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water. I just combined with the other sugar and water for a total of 2 1/2 cups sugar and 3/4 cup water. Consistency was great. Not sure that I whipped for 15 min though. I waited for it to get kind of stringy and pulling like taffy and they come out perfect every time!
