We made ...

marshmallows! This is the second time and they turned out even better than the first time!!

It is similar to the store bought, but just so much fresher. The kids love them :)
I really like looking at the white liquid turn into white thick cream.

Here are the pictures:


Here is the recipe:

From food Network:

Homemade Marshmallows:

  • 3 packages unflavored gelatin
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
  • Confectioners' sugar, for dusting

Combine the gelatin and 1/2 cup of cold water in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and allow to sit while you make the syrup.

Meanwhile, combine the sugar, corn syrup, salt, and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Raise the heat to high and cook until the syrup reaches 240 degrees F on a candy thermometer. Remove from the heat.

With the mixer on low speed, slowly pour the sugar syrup into the dissolved gelatin. Put the mixer on high speed and whip until the mixture is very thick, about 15 minutes. Add the vanilla and mix thoroughly.

  1. 1) Cool as hell that you made your own marshmallows. You know how I am, I'm always into making your own stuff from scratch (though not a big marshmallow fan, still think it's cool).

    2) Thought it was ironic that the recipe calls for gelatin AND Kosher salt (cuz isn't gelatin NOT Kosher? LOL!!!).

    3) I so mis Syd-ney!
