Cozy Nights By The Fire

Homemade Peppermint Marshmallows Ingredients: 2 Cups Powdered Sugar 3 Packets Unflavored Gelatin 1 1/2 Cups Sugar 1 Cup Light Corn Syrup 1/4 Tsp Salt 2 Tsps Vanilla Extract

Directions: 1. Brush the loaf pan with powdered sugar and set it aside to start on the prep. 2. Pour 1/2 cup water into your stand mixer’s bowl and add in your gelatin packages. Make sure you have your whisk attachment connected. 3. After leaving that to sit, get started on the sugar syrup. In a pot combine the sugar, corn syrup, salt and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil and mix until the sugar is dissolved, place in your candy thermometer and once it reaches 240 F - remove it. 4. Go ahead and start the mixer on low and add in the sugar syrup and vanilla. Increase the mixing speed to high and let beat until it becomes light and fluffy. Empty everything into the loaf pan and let sit for 2-4 hours until it’s no longer sticky. 5. Once dry, cover a cutting board with powdered sugar and slice into your desired cubes. You can serve immediately or layer over wax paper in a air tight container and keep for about 3 weeks.
