I just saw this post and didn't even know there was a recipe out there for this so let me say thanks for sharing first!!!!

Secondly could you please let me know how many marshmallow's are needed? I checked the recipe but did not see it on there (could be that the new one hasn't uploaded yet ).

Thanks again! thumbs_up.gifthumbs_up.gif

I just looked at the recipe again and its still not showing marshmallows. How many marshmallows do we need? A bag of minis?

Thank you for the update. I had saved the recipe in, my recipes. I don't know if it got saved or not though because there is nothing there right now.....and I agree, the recipe is not showing the change.

I know exactly how you feel! I posted a recipe for chocolate chocolate chip roll-out cookies, and as soon as I hit the sumit button noticed I'd forgotten to list the amount of chips. And once it's submitted, that's it. I emailed a question on how to edit a recipe, but never got a response.

Now I'm off to check out your recipe!

Okay, sorry for the delay, I haven't been on today..... you add 2 cups marshmallows (I use large ones) melted. I add them in right before you add the geletin. I have been thinking though.... I had 2 ratings at 5 stars on the recipe missing the marshmallow,lol. I wonder if it works without the marshmallows????? If it were thinner, you would be able to pipe a thinner pipe.. hhhhuuummmm I just might try it,lol. I posted the right recipe that has the marshmallows in it yesterday... recipes seem to take forever to upload!! Everything else is right on it just add the melted marshmallows and you'll be fine. Again, SORRY! icon_redface.gif

To measure the marshmallows, just squish them in a measuring cup as much as you can, so really it would be about 4 cups if you didn't squish them at all (does this make sense)

Yeah, that's why Post-It notes were orignally a failure. As was the Slinky. Somebody just came up with a new use for the failure...and made millions!

Is the gelatin 8 envelopes of flavorless gelatin (like Knox) or 8 small packages of Jell-o gelatin? icon_confused.gif I want to make some of these this weekend. They look great! icon_lol.gif

Ya, it's the flavorless packets

I know you wrote that it yields about 50 spider webs, but how many cups does it work out to?

Jopalis Posted 25 Oct 2008 , 6:24am

Do you think it is possible to scale it back to just a few webs?

dellboi2u Posted 25 Oct 2008 , 2:24pm

You could easily scale it back... I agree, it makes a ton!! I was just experimenting so ended up with a ton!! I would probably do a 1/4 of the recipe, so you have enough to work with. I'm not sure how many cups it all ended up with.... If I were to guess I would say about 8 cups.

I just tried this but it's a little TOO flexible, also all the whisking leaves a ton of air bubbles. Any tips?

I tried this recipe today for lack of anything else to make "webs" and I found it turned out fine. It is like gummy worm consistency, so if you're going for cotton candy like webs, or lace, this isn't going to work.

I put the liquid in a squeeze bottle (the kind you use for candy melts/candy making) and flung it back and forth on two-sheets-wide of waxed paper (coated in Crisco) in a criss cross pattern, and then just diagonal a few times. It dries to the touch in about an hour or two. It did not dry hard, but I messed up the recipe in halving it icon_razz.gif I halved everything except the 1 cup of water for the gelatin, so it was more liquid-y than it should have been.

Here is a picture of my webbing with mess up on the recipe:
