This recipes makes a lot of marshmallows. We used ours in hot chocolate, but it would be great to give as gifts or to make smores. We did the whole taste test to see if they are better than store bought. The verdict is in, YES! Make some for yourself, they are D-E-licious!
Lightly spray a 11-by-15-inch baking dish, can be metal or glass, with cooking spray. Generously dust baking dish with confectioners' sugar.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, sprinkle gelatin over 1/2 cup cold water. Allow to sit while you make the syrup.
In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar, corn syrup and 1/2 cup water. Cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Raise heat to high and cook until the syrup reaches 240 degrees on a candy thermometer. Do not stir mixture. Remove from heat and add the salt.
Once the marshmallow is set, run a knife all around the edge of the pan to loosen the marshmallow. Turn the marshmallow out onto a work surface dusting with confectioners' sugar and cut them in squares. You can also use cookie cutters, dusted with confectioners' sugar, to cut marshmallows into cute shapes.
