Home-made Marshmallows!!

Posted in Marshmallows by nora on January 17, 2010

I know most marshmallows are hard to make, but these are suprisingly easy! These go great in hot chocolate, by a campfire, or just plain! Got this from www.visionsofsugarplum.com (also good for blackmailing little brothers into saying please)

You will need:

  • butter and confectioners sugar
  • 2 tablespoons gelatine
  • 1/2 cup cold water
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup boiling water ( 2 min. in the microwave works too)
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

What you do:

Take an 8×8 baking pan, butter, line with wax paper, and butter and dust lightly with confectioners sugar. Add the gelatin and cold water in a mixer. Let dissolve.

In a large saucepan, add boiling water (must be boiling before added), granulated sugar, and salt. Whisk over medium-high heat until boiling. Cook over heat (WITHOUT stirring!) for 15-20 min.

 Slowly pour syrup into the disolved gelatin and add vanilla extract. Beat for 20 min. on medium setting, or until cool and thick.

Butter a spatula and pour mixture into the pan. Freeze the marshmallow overnight.

Pull the wax paper out of the pan and cut marshmallow with a buttered and sugared knife. It helps to add confectioners sugar to the top of the marshmallow. Roll the marshmallows in confectioners sugar until they aren’t sticky. Enjoy!
