Does anyone have a good recipe for homemade marshmallows? I made them once, many many years ago, but the recipe is long lost.

I made them too and had a photo on cc but they deleted it as it was not cake related icon_cry.gif

Can't remember which recipe I used but they were so yummy and well worth making icon_smile.gif

The Alton Brown recipe on food network's site is AMAZING! After I made them the first time my people all beg for them... definitely a 5 star.

2 1/2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
1 1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
Confectioners' sugar (for dusting)

Combine gelatin and 1/2 cup cold water in the bowl of an electric mixer with whisk attachment.

Let it stand 30 minutes.

Combine granulated sugar, corn syrup, salt and 1/2 cup of water in a small heavy saucepan;

place over low heat and stir until sugar has dissolved. Wash down sides of pan with a wet pastry

brush to dissolve sugar crystals.

Clip on a candy thermometer; raise heat to high. Cook syrup without stirring until it reaches 244

degrees (firm-ball stage). Immediately remove pan from heat.

With mixer on low speed, slowly and carefully pour syrup into the softened gelatin.

Increase speed to high; beat until mixture is very thick and white and has almost tripled in

volume, about 15 minutes. Add vanilla; beat to incorporate.

Generously dust an 8 x 12-inch glass baking pan with confectioners' sugar. Pour marshmallow

mixture into pan. Dust with confectioners' sugar; let stand overnight, uncovered, to dry out.
