Instructions

  1. Combine ½ cup cold water with the gelatin in the bowl of a stand-up mixer. Set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan, combine remaining water, sugar, and corn syrup or honey. Bring to a boil and stir occasionally until syrup reaches 240 degrees on a candy thermometer.
  3. Pour hot liquid in a stream into the gelatin mixture while mixing on a low setting. When combined, mix on a high setting for 12 to 15 minutes until lukewarm and very fluffy. Add salt and vanilla.
  4. Coat a 9-by-13-inch pan with cornstarch. The mixture will be very sticky, and the cornstarch helps you work with it.
  5. Spoon the fluff onto the pan. Spread with the back of a spoon or spatula until even. Let set overnight. Coat a knife with cornstarch and cut into squares.

Tips & Notes

To make a salted-chocolate version, melt 2 cups chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon canola oil. Dip set marshmallows in the melted chocolate, place on wax paper and sprinkle with a pinch of salt.

  1. Hello Melanie! Add the salt and vanilla after the marshmallows are fluffy and begin to cool.
