For Marshmallows:

  • 3 packets unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 1/2 cups (297 grams) granulated sugar
  • 1 cup (312 grams) light corn syrup
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • powdered sugar for dusting


For Marshmallows:

  • Prepare a 12x8 baking dish (do not use a metal pan) by sprinkling it generously with powdered sugar. Set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment combine the gelatin and 1/2 cup of cold water. Allow the mixture to sit.
  • In a large saucepan combine the sugar, corn syrup, and 1/2 cup water. Place over medium-high heat. Allow the sugar to dissolve and raise heat to high. Cook until the mixture reaches 240 degrees (F). Remove from heat.
  • Turn the mixer to low speed and slowly pour the sugar mixture down the side of the bowl into the gelatin.
  • Turn the mixer on high and allow to mix for about 15 minutes or until the mixture is very thick. Add the vanilla and combine.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared pan, spread evenly, and dust the top with more powdered sugar.
  • Allow the mixture to sit overnight uncovered to allow the marshmallows to dry out.
  • Remove marshmallows from pan and cut into desired shapes.
