- About 1 cup confectioners sugar shopping list
- 3½ envelopes (2 tablespoons plus 2 ½ teaspoons) unflavored gelatin shopping list
- ½ cup cold water shopping list
- 2 cups granulated sugar shopping list
- ½ cup light corn syrup shopping list
- ½ cup hot water (about 115 degrees) shopping list
- ¼ teaspoon salt shopping list
- 2 large egg whites shopping list

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!
