DIRECTIONS

  • In a large mixing bowl (or in the bowl of an electric mixer), sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 cup cold water. Soak 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile: Combine sugar, corn syrup, 1/4 cup water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Boil hard for 1 minute.
  • Pour the boiling syrup into gelatin and mix at high speed. Add the salt and beat for about 10 - 12 minutes.
  • Add the vanilla and incorporate into mixture.
  • NOTE: Lightly oil your hands and a spatula.
  • Scrape into a 9 X 9 inch pan lined with oiled plastic wrap and spread evenly. ***Don't skip the plastic wrap step or the marshmallow mixture will stick and you'll have a very delicious mess!
  • After pouring marshmallow mixture into pan, take another piece of plastic wrap lightly oiled on the side which you will be placing on top of the marshmallow mixture and lightly press marshmallow mixture till flat and even into the pan.
  • Let marshmallows sit up for about 2 hours (I have had luck with 1 1/2 hours). Remove from pan, dredge whole slab with confectioners’ sugar and cut into squares. Each time you cut or slice you will need to keep using the confectioners’ sugar and dredging each piece so they will not stick to each other and your knife (or scissors).
  • Enjoy!
