Try making your own marshmallows, its easier than you think.
Prep Time 4 hrs
Cook Time 15 mins
Total Time 4 hrs 15 mins
Servings 24


  • 3 pkgs unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup cold water divided
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup icing sugar
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch


  • In a large mixing bowl, add 1/2 cup water and sprinkle on gelatin. Let sit.
  • In a saucepan add 1/2 cup water, sugar, corn syrup and salt. Heat over medium high heat until candy thermometer reaches 240°F then immediately remove from the heat.
  • Using a mixer, slowly add the sugar syrup into the gelatin mixture. Then beat on high until it becomes very thick, about 15 minutes. Then mix in the vanilla.
  • In a bowl, combine icing sugar and cornstarch. Grease a rimmed baking sheet and sprinkle with some of the icing sugar mixture. Reserve rest.
  • Pour sugar mixture into pan, and spread out evenly with a greased spatula. Dust some of the icing sugar mixture over top to fully coat. Then let sit uncovered for at least 4 hours.
  • Flip out the marshmallows out onto a cutting board, then cut into squares using a pizza cutter (dusted with the icing sugar mixture). Then sprinkle the remaining icing sugar mixture over all the cut sides of the marshmallows.
  • Store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.
