Food : Homemade Marshmallows | Be The Hit This Holiday Season With Made from Scratch Marshmallows

Hello! Blog

Longtime since I've posted on here ; sharing a DIY or recipe. As of late I've been doing all my posts on Instagram so if you aren't following me over there go check out what I've been up to.

With that being said I really want to get back to posting on here more often, It's a lot easier sharing my posts with a blog link than it is an Instagram post. So if you like these recipe posts and things keep an eye out over here.

Want to be the hit of your holiday party or the favorite at your family Christmas?
 Bring homemade marshmallows to the party. They are actually rather easy to make just take make sure to be careful, you are working with boiling sugar. Some people won't even realize you can make these from scratch so good chance they will think you are a baking genius. 


1 Cup Water
2 Tablespoons , plus 1 1/2 Teaspoons Powdered Unflavored Gelatin 
1 1/2 Cups Granulated Sugar
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Cup Light Corn Syrup 
1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract 
1/2 Cup Powdered Sugar 

Lightly grease a 8x9 pan with vegetable oil or cooking spray and dust with powder sugar.

In a mixing bowl add  1/2 cup water (add water first) & powdered gelatin and allow for it to bloom.

In a sauce pan add your candy thermometer; sugar, salt, 1/2 cup water & corn syrup. Mix together using a metal spoon. 
Cook on medium/high heat until your candy thermometer reaches 240 degrees Fahrenheit. Make sure to stir mixture and not to burn your sugar.

Once sugar mixture has reached 240 degrees pour into your mixing bowl and or stand mixer with bloomed gelatin; add vanilla extract and whisk on low for 5 mins or so. Slowly increase speed once mixture starts to thicken. I keep mine low in the beginning because I don't want the hot liquid flying out of my bowl.

Mix on medium/high until your marshmallow begins to form thick white peaks. This does take a little time so don't get discouraged if you've been mixing for 5 minutes and not much has happened yet.

Once the peaks have formed pour into greased pan. Take a spatula to scrap out bowl and even out marshmallow. Let them set up and cool off for about 30-45 minutes before sprinkling the top with powdered sugar. After completely cooled cut with sharp knife and enjoy.

If you cut and place in container or stack on platter sprinkle all sides with powdered sugar. This helps them to not stick together.

If you end up making these let me know how they turn out. Tag me on Instagram @ChicCountryGirl
