How to make it

  • You will need a candy thermometer.
  • Spray a 13 by 9 by 2-inch rectangular metal baking pan with Pam and dust with some confectioners’ sugar.
  • In a bowl of standing electric mixer, sprinkle gelatin over cold water and let stand to soften.
  • In a 3-quart pan, cook granulated sugar, corn syrup, hot water, and salt over low heat, stirring with a wooden spoon, until sugar is dissolved. Increase heat to moderate and boil mixture, without stirring, until a candy or digital thermometer registers 240 degrees, about 12 minutes.
  • Remove pan from heat and pour sugar mixture over gelatin mixture, stirring until gelatin is dissolved.
  • Beat mixture on high speed until white, thick and nearly tripled in volume, about 6 minutes. In a large bowl with cleaned beaters, beat whites until they just hold stiff peaks.
  • Beat whites and vanilla into sugar mixture until just combined.
  • Pour mixture into baking pan and sift ¼ cup confectioners’ sugar evenly over top.
  • Chill marshmallow, uncovered, until firm, at least three hours, and up to 1 day.
  • Run a thin knife around edges of pan and invert pan onto large cutting board.
  • Lifting up 1 corner of inverted pan, with fingers loosen marshmallow and let drop onto cutting board.
  • With a large knife trim edges of marshmallow and cut marshmallows into roughly 1-inch cubes.
  • Sift remaining confectioners’ sugar into a large bowl and add marshmallows in batches, tossing to evenly coat.
  • Marshmallows keep in an airtight container at cool room temperature 1 week. Enjoy them this Winter!

    Is it possible to make different flavors of marshmallows? I know there is a site on the web that sells a ton of different flavored huge home made marshmallows and I'd love to be able to make some like that. Thanks for posting this! I am pinning and saving this and going to try it soon.
