These worked great, but I had to give 3 stars because the vanilla was WAY too over powering! I will use again, but I will cut the vanilla at least in half if not more (it left a vanilla extract after taste).

Easy, easy! Really!! I made this recipe with a few changes. I only used 1 tbsp vanilla, otherwise followed ingredients. Rather than dusting my pan with cornstarch I used powdered sugar. While the marshmallows were sticky and warm I used a tube of decorating gel in red and squeezed over the top (used only 1/2 the tube) and then with a knife swirled it thru the marshmallows. I lightly sprinkled powdered sugar over the top and allowed to cure! Fantastic and so pretty. Gave as gifts with homemade cocoa mix!
