    • 3 (3/4) oz envelopes unflavored powdered gelatin
    • 1 1/2 cups cold water (divided)
    • 2 cups sugar
    • 1 cup light corn syrup
    • 1/4 tsp salt
    • 1 tsp vanilla
    • 2 tbsp powdered sugar
    • 1 cup powdered sugar (used to toss and coat the cut marshmallow pieces)
    1. Pour 3/4 cup cold water into bowl of a stand mixer. Sprinkle the gelatin over the water. Attach bowl to the mixer and fit with the whisk attachment.
    2. Clip a candy thermometer to a 3 qt. saucepan. Add in the sugar, corn syrup, salt and 3/4 cup water and bring to boil over medium heat without stirring until reaches 234 to 235 degrees, about 10 minutes. With the mixer on low speed, pour the hot sugar mixture into the gelatin in a slow thin steady stream.
    3. Add in the vanilla and carefully increase the speed to high and beat until the mixture has thickened and cooled, about 5 minutes (bottom of the bowl should be just warm to the touch). Line a 13x9 pan with foil leaving an overhang. Sift 1 tbsp powdered sugar on bottom of pan. Pour marshmallow mixture into pan and spread to even out. Sprinkle 2nd tbsp over top. Let set at room temperature until set, at least 2 hours.
    4. Use the overhang and lift out of pan. Using a knife or large pizza cutter, dip into cold water and cut along the sides to release from foil. Remove to cutting board and continue cutting into squares or shapes you want. Keep dipping knife into water to keep down on the sticking. Put 1 cup powdered sugar into a bowl to toss marshmallows in to coat. They will be very sticky. Toss a few at a time.

    Wrapped well they will stay fresh at room temperature for a month.
