There is nothing like homemade marshmallows this time of year!
They melt into cocoa like butter...mmmm!
|Combine the gelatin and 1 cup of cold water in the bowl of an electric |
mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Pulse the whish quickly,
just to incorporate then let sit while you make the syrup.
|Raise the heat to high and cook until the syrup reaches |
240 degrees F on a candy thermometer.
Be patient, it takes a bit of time. Remove from the heat.
|Slowly and carefully add the syrup to the dissolved gelatin. |
Turn on and within a few seconds increase speed to high.
Whip on high for 15 minutes (set a timer)
|While the marshmallows are whipping, butter or oil a 9x13 pan |
then completely coat the pan with powdered sugar.
( I use a square corner pan, which is by Calphalon, and seems to always be in stock at TJ Maxx)
|Add the vanilla and mix thoroughly for an additional minute.|
