- 1 cup water
- 3 tablespoons unflavored kosher gelatin
- 2 cups sugar
Place 1/2 cup water in a large bowl and sprinkle the gelatin over it in an even manner. Let it sit for a few minutes and then begin the next steps.
Put the sugar and the other 1/2 cup of water in a small pot and bring to a boil while stirring. Once the mixture is a rolling boil (or 242 degrees F with a candy thermometer), pour the hot sugar water mixture over the gelatin/water mixture.
Beat with an electric mixer for about 10 minutes until the combined mixture turns into marshmallow with peaks.
Pour marshmallow mixture into a greased, 9 x 13 glass dish.
Let it sit out for several hours and up to 12 hours until firm.
Cut into rectangles. If desired, place in a bowl and toss with powdered sugar so that they aren’t as sticky.
Store marshmallows in an airtight container in the pantry.
Note: These marshmallows melt quicker than store-bought marshmallows. However, you can place one in the bottom of an ice-cream cone, then fill the cone with other yummy things, like chocolate chips. Cover all of this with foil, and place it in the fire to melt and get gooey. YUM!!! Here is an official recipe, if you’d like.
