Homemade Marshmallows

  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, divided, Domino®
  • 3 envelopes unflavored gelatin (about 3 tablespoons)
  • 1 cup water, divided
  • 3 cups sugar, Domino®
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Line a 13x9-inch baking pan with wax paper. Sift 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar evenly over wax paper.

In the bowl of a heavy-duty stand mixer, soften gelatin in 1/2 cup water. Let stand for 10 minutes.

In a large saucepan, combine remaining 1/2 cup water, sugar, corn syrup, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; boil for 1 minute.

Turn mixer on low. Add vanilla to gelatin mixture. Slowly add hot sugar mixture. Increase speed to high; beat for 10 minutes, or until thick. Pour mixture into prepared pan. Sift evenly with remaining 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar. Let stand for 3 to 4 hours. Cut into 16 squares.
