Ingredients

  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tablespoon gelatin
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Instructions

  1. Start by greasing a square baking dish and dusting it with a mixture of cornstarch and powdered sugar. This will prevent the marshmallows from sticking.
  2. In a saucepan, combine granulated sugar and water. Heat over medium-high heat until the mixture reaches 240°F (115°C) on a candy thermometer, which should take about 10 minutes.
  3. While the sugar mixture is heating, sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 cup of cold water in a mixing bowl. Allow it to bloom for 5 minutes.
  4. Once the sugar mixture reaches the right temperature, slowly pour it over the gelatin mixture while whisking constantly.
  5. Add vanilla extract and continue to whisk until the mixture becomes thick and fluffy, about 10-15 minutes.
  6. Transfer the mixture into the prepared baking dish and let it set for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  7. Once set, dust the top with more cornstarch and powdered sugar and cut into squares.
  8. Your fluffy homemade marshmallows are ready to enjoy in hot cocoa or as a sweet treat!
