Great for gift-giving, homemade marshmallows are a fun do-it-yourself project that you can customize with favorite flavors and colors.




  • Line a 13x9x2-inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving paper handging over sides. Coat parchment paper with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

    To a very large mixing bowl add gelatin. Pour water over to cover completely; stir to combine.

    In a large saucepan combine the granulated sugar, corn syrup, flavored syrup, and salt over medium heat; stirring until sugar is completely melted. Bring sugar mixture to boiling over medium-high heat; attach a candy thermometer to saucepan. Boil 1 to 2 minutes more or until thermometer registers 240ºF.

    With mixer set to medium speed, pour sugar syrup down side of mixing bowl into gelatin mixture. Increase speed to high; mix 5 minutes until marshmallow mixture is white and fluffy and bowl is cool to touch, about 122ºF.

    Using a rubber spatula, transfer marshmallow mixture to prepared pan; spread evenly. Add drops of food coloring to mixture, about 2 inches apart. Using a table knife, swirl in coloring. Chill, uncovered, about 4 hours or overnight

    Remove from refrigerator. Sift powdered sugar over marshmallow. Turn out onto cutting board; remove any attached paper. Sift powdered sugar over other side. Using a sharp knife coated with powdered sugar (to prevent sticking), cut marshmallow into squares. Place additional powdered sugar in a small bowl; dredge squares. Place additional powdered sugar in a small bowl; dredge squares to coat. Store in refrigerator in an airtight container up to 2 weeks. Makes 117 one-inch marshmallows.

If using a hand-held mixer, place a wet cloth underneath the bowl so it doesn't slide on the counter top.
