• Make Your Own Marshmallows

    Chocolate Almond Dipped Spoons-lissmarshmallows.gif This particular recipe is just about the easiest recipe in the world to make, although it can sound a bit complicated at first. If you've never experienced the sweet creamy flavor of a Real Marshmallow, you are in for a treat. These light fluffy munchies will make your tastebuds dance.








    Chocolate Almond Dipped Spoons-8-13-08-20009.jpg In a Large mixing bowl (or electric mixer bowl) Combine:

    * 2 1/2 tablespoons unflavored knox gelatin
    * 1/2 c. Cold water

    Allow it to set at least 20 minutes.
    Chocolate Almond Dipped Spoons-8-13-08-20005.jpg Combine the following over low/med heat in a saucepan:

    * 1/2 c. Cold water
    * 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
    * 1 cup light corn syrup
    * 1/4 teaspoon salt
    * 2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
    Chocolate Almond Dipped Spoons-8-13-08-20006.jpg Scrape the edges of the pan to get ALL of the sugar crystals.
    Chocolate Almond Dipped Spoons-8-13-08-20012.jpg Increase heat to med/high and cook syrup until it reaches 244 degrees ( Borderline Firm Ball Stage) on the Candy thermometer. Immediately remove from heat.
    Chocolate Almond Dipped Spoons-8-13-08-20014.jpg Turn mixer on low speed with whisk attachment on the lowest setting and very carefully pour hot syrup into the softened gelatin. Be very careful not to pour the syrup into the moving whisk itself as this could cause splattering (and potential for getting burned!)
    Chocolate Almond Dipped Spoons-8-13-08-20018.jpg Gradually increase the speed to High and continue to beat the marshmallow until it's very thick, white and tripled in volume. (This takes about 15 minutes in an electric stand mixer).
    Chocolate Almond Dipped Spoons-8-13-08-20022.jpg Add Vanilla and beat until fully incorporated.
    Chocolate Almond Dipped Spoons-8-13-08-20025.jpg Dust (very generously) a 9 x13 pan with Confectioners sugar.


    Pour marshmallow mix into the pan and allow to set several hours (uncovered). Do not place in the fridge.)



    A few notes- I Highly recommend using a KitchenAid mixer for this recipe. If you have a hand mixer that will work too, but I recommend having a helper nearby that you can swap with if you get tired of Whipping!

    Liss Notes on Variations:

    Roll Finished Product into Dark Cocoa Powder or Toasted Coconut, or Jimmies rather than confectioners sugar

    Chocolate Almond Dipped Spoons-marshmallow-fire-icon.gif To Make a Family Size S'mores Dessert simply cover the bottom of a 9x13 pan with crushed graham crackers and then a layer of broken up chocolate bars. Add your marshmallow after whipping, top with chocolate and another layer of crushed graham crackers. Cut into small squares and roll in confectioners sugar.

    Tried -n- True Tips:
    ~ Cutting Tip- To easily cut into squares quickly, use a Pizza cutter dusted in confectioners sugar

    ~For Fun & Festivities- let the kids cut them out using various cookie cutter shapes (Stars for the 4th of July, Pumpkins or Ghosts for Halloween, etc)

    Chocolate Almond Dipped Spoons-holiday.gif For the Holiday- Generously Sprinkle the top with Crushed Peppermint Candies as soon as the marshmallow is poured. Allow it to set for several hours, cut into small squares and dip 1 corner in chocolate. Makes gorgeous- delicious candies that melt in your mouth, literally.

      I am going to make this as soon as I get a mixer! I love MARSHMALLOWS! My husband thinks I'm nuts but my 17 year old appreciated my nuttiness when I taught him how to toast marshmallows over the stove top! (Not a job for children. If you touch the burners you have to clean it off while its hot!)
