How to Make It

Step 1

Grease a 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking pan and lightly sprinkle with confectioners' sugar.

Step 2

Pour the cold water into a large bowl and sprinkle with the gelatin. Let stand for 5 minutes.

Step 3

Heat the granulated sugar, corn syrup, hot water and salt in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Increase the heat to medium and boil the sugar mixture for 10 minutes or until a candy thermometer reads 240° F. Immediately remove the pan from the heat and pour the sugar mixture into the bowl with the gelatin mixture.

Step 4

Beat the sugar and gelatin mixture with an electric mixer on high speed for 8 minutes or until it is white, thick and tripled in volume.

Step 5

Beat the egg whites in a clean large bowl (with clean mixer blades) until they form stiff peaks. Gently whisk the egg whites, vanilla and food coloring, if desired, into the sugar mixture.

Step 6

Spread the sugar mixture evenly into the prepared pan and sprinkle with confectioner's sugar or sprinkles, if desired. Cover the pan and chill the mixture for at least 4 hours. Invert the chilled mixture onto a cutting board. Use a knife to cut into individual marshmallows or use a greased cookie cutter to cut out shapes.
