Directions

  1. In the bowl of an electric mixer, sprinkle gelatin over 1/3 cup cold water.
  2. Allow gelatin to soften, about 5 minutes.
  3. In a small saucepan, combine 1/4 cup water and sugar, and stir over medium-high heat until sugar is dissolved.
  4. Stop stirring, and place a candy thermometer into sugar water; wipe sides of pan with a wet brush if sugar crystals have splattered up.
  5. Boil sugar until temperature reaches the soft-ball stage (238º).
  6. Remove syrup from heat; add to softened gelatin.
  7. Using the whisk attachment of an electric mixer, hand-stir the mixture a few minutes to cool; place bowl on the mixer stand.
  8. Beat on medium high with the whisk attachment until soft peaks form and the marshmallow mixture holds shape, 8 to 10 minutes.
  9. Transfer marshmallow mixture to a large (14-inch) pastry bag fitted with a 1/2 inch (#11Ateco) tip, and use immediately.
