Whip Up Your Own Marshmallow Bliss

Ingredients

  • 21 g (3 envelopes) unflavored gelatin (can be replaced with 3 tsp agar agar)
  • 400 g (14 oz) granulated sugar
  • 240 ml (8 fl oz) corn syrup (can be replaced with the same amount of maple syrup or honey)
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

For dusting:

  • 60 g (2 oz) powdered sugar
  • 60 g (2 oz) cornstarch

Liquid needed: 240 ml (8 fl oz) divided in two equal parts:

  • 120 ml (4 fl oz) for dissolving the gelatin.
  • 120 ml (4 fl oz) for the syrup.

Directions

  1. Prepare your baking pan with parchment paper, add little weights(forks, knives, heavy cutlery) in the corners of the pan, and dust it with a mixture of powdered sugar and cornstarch.
  2. Dissolve the gelatin in 120 ml (4 oz) and let it rest while you cover the next step.
  3. Combine the granulated sugar with corn syrup (or any of the replacements) and the remaining 120 ml of water. 
  4. Cook the mixture into a syrup over medium-low heat for approximately 8 minutes, or until syrup thickens. (115°C – 240°F)
  5. Microwave the gelatine you made at step 2 for 30 seconds or heat it up in a saucepan until it becomes completely liquid.
  6. With a mixer, slowly add hot syrup over the liquid gelatine while continuously mixing.
  7. Gradually increase the speed of the mixer and beat the mixture until it’s very thick. (can take up between 8-12 minutes)
  8. Add vanilla extract and a pinch of salt and mix very well for another few minutes.
  9. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan.
  10. Let the marshmallows rest at room temperature for a minimum of 6 hours.
  11. Dust your cutting board with a mixture of powdered sugar and cornstarch and cut the marshmallows to the desired size.
  12. Coat each marshmallow, individually, in powdered sugar and cornstarch to prevent stickiness.
  13. Store the marshmallows in an airtight container away from humidity.
