for their first marriage meal she made him marshmallows
and found out his bite was worse than his bark.
Mark must be a meat and potato man....
1 cup cold water divided
3 1/4 oz envelope unflavored gelatin
1 cup light corn syrup
1/4 tsp salt
2 tsp real vanilla extract
three cups powdered sugar sifted
Butter or spray a 13 x 9 pan and then like with parchment paper
sprinkle powdered sugar in bottom of the pan
Place 1/2 cup of water in a mixing bowl and sprinkle gelatin on top. Let stand for fifteen minutes...
In the meantime combine the rest of the ingredients except remaining powdered sugar and vanilla in a pan. stir over medium heat until it comes to a boil.
Cover pan and let it boil for three minutes without stirring to dissove sugar.
remove cover and attach a candy thermometer. Turn the heat on high and let boil without stirring until thermometer reaches 240 degrees....Slowly pour into mixing bowl with gelatin and water while running mixer on low.
Mix until it triples in size and gets stiff...It takes about 10 minutes. Add vanilla and mix it in...
Spread marshmallow in pan...it is sticky!!!! sprinkle more powdered sugar on top and let sit twelve hours. cut with a sharp knife. Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.....
These are so good and the kids like to help with the mixing...(once the hot stuff is mixed in...)you can add food coloring and different extracts...Olivia likes them for her birthday parties colored pink...You also can dip half of them in melted white chocolate chips and then sprinkle with cute sprinkles...Oh yummy, love that sugar high!
