Easy Marshmallows

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 225g cold water, divided (225mL)
  • 24g gelatin sheets (or 5 teaspoons granulated gelatin)
  • 218g light corn syrup (2/3 cup)
  • 400g granulated sugar (2 cups)
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 100g powdered sugar
  • 20g cornstarch


Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper and lightly spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
Pour half of the water in the bowl of a stand mixer. Break gelatin sheets in half and completely submerge in the water. Bloom 10 minutes.
While your gelatin blooms, add the remaining water and sugar to a saucepot, stir to dissolve the sugar. Add the corn syrup. Try to avoid getting sugar on the sides of the pot. Place over medium heat and wash down the sides with a wet finger or a clean pastry brush.
Cook until the sugar reaches 240F (115.5C).
Sprinkle salt on top of gelatin, turn mixer on low, and carefully pour the hot sugar mixture into the bowl. Be very careful not to hit the whisk. Gradually increase the mixer speed to high, mixing until very thick, about 10 minutes. (The bowl should be barely warm). Add vanilla and mix to incorporate.
Using a rubber spatula, pour marshmallow into prepared sheet pan. Lightly spray an offset spatula with cooking spray and then spread marshmallow out evenly over half the pan.
In a small bowl whisk together the powdered sugar and cornstarch.
Sift sugar mixture over the top of the marshmallows. Let cool completely then wrap and store in a cool, dry place overnight.
Dust a cutting board with powdered sugar mixture and flip marshmallow out of pan onto cutting board. Sift more powdered sugar mixture on top, and cut into squares. Toss the squares in sugar mixture to coat. This will keep them from drying out and also gives that familiar thin crust to the outside. Wrap and store for up to 3 days. You can store them longer, they aren’t going to go bad, but they will gradually dry out and become hard. Just like that time you accidentally left the Puff bag open
