  • 4 Tablespoons (4 envelopes) Knox unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup cold water (for gelatin)
  • 4 cups sugar
  • 1 cup cold water (separate from the other one)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract
  • Powdered sugar to coat the marshmallows once they are done
  1. Soak the 4 envelopes of gelatin in 1 cup water and set aside.
  2. In a medium sauce pan, combine the 4 cups sugar and the other cup of water.
  3. Cook on the stove (while stirring) until sugar is dissolved,this will not take long.
  4. Add the gelatin to the cooking sugar.
  5. Bring to a boil. ( I stir a lot while this is cooking so that it does not burn)
  6. Once it has come to a boil, remove from heat and pour into a large mixing bowl, let cool down.
  7. Once it has cooled for a while (it can still be warm) add the salt and vanilla.
  8. The mixture will look like a clear liquid with maybe some white on top, don’t panic that is how its supposed to look.
  9. With an electric mixer, mix for what will seem like a long time (10 to 15 minutes).
  10. The mixture will start changing from clear to opaque to white.
  11. It will start to thicken and double in size.
  12. Once it has turned white and gotten pretty thick, pour it into a greased 11″x15″ glass baking pan.
  13. I use butter or margarine to grease the pan.
  14. Again, if you do not have this size pan, you can use a 9″x13″ but your marshmallows will be thicker.
  15. Let this set.
  16. Once it has set you can cut it with a knife (slide the knife through).
  17. Take out the sweet little cubes and roll them in powdered sugar so that they don’t stick together.
