After some horrible first attempts at making marshmallows, I think I finally got it! These are super pink cherry marshmallows:






Some are dipped in the wonderful India Tree sugar; the others in powdered sugar, some white chocolate and a bit of sugar on top.






***EDIT***
The basic recipe:

3 envelopes of gelatin
1/2 cup cold water
2 cups granulated sugar
2/3 cups corn syrup
1/4 cup water
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla extract (or any extract of your choice)


In mixing bowl, combine gelatin and 1/2c water, let stand 10 mins.

After gelatin been allowed to sit for approx. 7-8 mins, combine sugar, corn syrup and water in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil and allow to rapid/hard boil for 1 whole min.

Pour syrup over gelatin, add salt and mix for 12 mins.

After 12 mins, add your extract of choice and mix till combined.

Pour marshmallow mixture in a pan that has been lined with plastic wrap and lightly oiled. Cover the mallows with an additional piece of oiled plastic wrap and allow to sit overnight.

To cut the marshmallows:
Plop the large marshmallow out of the plastic wrap and onto a cutting board that has been dusted with powdered sugar. Use the sharpest knife you've got in the drawer to cut these bad boys up. You can either dip your knife in powdered sugar before each cut, or run under hot water before each cut (my choice method). Dip your marshmallows into whatever sounds good to you: crushed nuts, sugar crystals or powdered sugar.

Enjoy!

These look fab. This quite spooky as I was on the Martha Stewart website earlier (I was bored) and I found a recipe for marshmallows. I've never thought to make marshmallows before and now I see this post! Marshmallows, twice in one day. I think it's a sign telling me to go out and make some  Tongue

You really should...they're a bit tricky with the amount of sticky it produces...but well worth the effort!
