DIY: Homemade Marshmallows

Happy St. Patricks Day everyone! This morning, I was eating my breakfast while watching one of my favorite channels, the Food Network. Ina Garten was making these amazing treats from scratch so I was inspired to write this post! Who doesn't love marshmallows? They taste so good with rice krispies.

Here's how you make America's favorite candy:

  • Ingredients:
  • 3 cups white sugar
  • 1/4 cup corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup confectioners' sugar for dusting

1. Generously coat a 9x13 dish with cooking spray.

2. In a large saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, salt and water. Heat to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface. Remove from heat and beat with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in vanilla. Pour into prepared pan.

3. Chill in refrigerator 8 hours or overnight. To cut, loosen edges with a knife. Dust surface with confectioners' sugar, and turn out onto a waxed paper lined surface. Dust with confectioners' sugar again and cut with a knife.
