What You'll Need

Confectioners' sugar
1/2 cup cold water
3 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup
1/2 cup hot water
1/8 teaspoon salt
2 egg whites
1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract or your favorite flavor
Food coloring
Chocolate sprinkles or your favorite color (optional)

How to Make It

  • 1

    Grease a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan and lightly sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.

  • 2

    Pour the cold water into a large bowl and sprinkle with the gelatin. Let stand for 5 minutes.

  • 3

    Heat the granulated sugar, corn syrup, hot water and salt in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Increase the heat to medium and boil the sugar mixture for 10 minutes or until a candy thermometer reads 240° F. Immediately remove the pan from the heat and pour the sugar mixture into the bowl with the gelatin mixture.

  • 4

    Beat the sugar and gelatin mixture with an electric mixer on high speed for 8 minutes or until it is white, thick and tripled in volume.

  • 5

    Beat the egg whites in a clean large bowl (with clean mixer blades) until they form stiff peaks. Gently whisk the egg whites, vanilla and food coloring, if desired, into the sugar mixture.

  • 6

    Spread the sugar mixture evenly into the prepared pan and sprinkle with confectioner's sugar or sprinkles, if desired. Cover the pan and chill the mixture for at least 4 hours. Invert the chilled mixture onto a cutting board. Use a knife to cut into individual marshmallows or use a greased cookie cutter to cut out shapes.
