Homemade Snickerdoodle Marshmallows

Homemade marshmallows are surprisingly simple to make! Perfect in hot cocoa, eaten on their own like candy, or plopped in a cup of hot cocoa. Delish!

Ingredients

1
cup water
3
packets unflavored gelatin
2 1/3
cups sugar
1
cup light corn syrup
1
tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2
tablespoon cinnamon
1/2
cup powdered sugar

Directions

  • 1 Fill a medium bowl with 1/2 cup of cold water. Sprinkle gelatin from all three packets over the water and set aside.
  • 2 Place 2 cups of sugar and corn syrup in a large skillet with 1/2 cup of water. Whisk together until boiling, then allow to boil for 2 minutes, or until the mixture reaches about 240°F (soft ball stage) on a candy thermometer.
  • 3 Place softened gelatin in a stand mixer bowl, fitted with the whisk attachment. Slowly begin to drizzle hot syrup into the bowl, with mixer turned to low. Add vanilla.
  • 4 When all syrup is in the bowl, turn beater to high and whip until the mixter is very light, fluffy, white and thickened. Use a slightly moistened plastic spatula to scoop half of the mixture into a small bowl. Set aside briefly, while you add 1 tablespoon of the cinnamon to the remaining marshmallow mixture in the stand mixer bowl. Whip until well mixed, about 30 seconds on high.
  • 5 Add the reserved marshmallow mixture back into the bowl, and fold the two mixtures together with a spatula, just until the mixture begins to swirl.
  • 6 Spray a 9x13 baking pan with nonstick baking spray. In a small bowl, stir together the remaining sugar, cinnamon, and powdered sugar. Sprinkle a tablespoon of this mixture over the bottom of the prepared baking dish.
  • 7 Transfer the swirled marshmallow mixture into the baking dish. Moisten hands slightly to smooth out the top of the marshmallows. Sprinkle with another tablespoon or two of the powdered sugar mixture.
  • 8 Allow marshmallows to cool and set up for about an hour. Use a sharp knife, which has been dipped in cold water, to slice marshmallows into bite-sized squares. Roll in remaining powdered sugar mixture to keep marshmallows from being overly sticky on the edges.

As prepared by Cheeky Kitchen,

Imagine a cup of cocoa with these Homemade Snickerdoodle Marshmallows floating all melty-like on top...

I know what just happened. You read "homemade marshmallows" and your eyes glazed over.

Yeah, I know.

That happened to me when I came across these Homemade Snickerdoodle Marshmallows. I was all, "Don't you have to be a five-star candy chef to make these?"

Answer: Nope. Because 6 ingredients and 20 minutes later, I was heel-clickin' about my kitchen, squealing like Shirley Temple, starting in on a second batch, and conjuring up Christmas presents for every human I knew.

I know the process may sound haute and overwhelming, but it's actually soooo easy. And, I've gone and made it even easier, because I took photos all along the way and am going to walk you through the entire marshmallow-making process with easy, bite-sized instructions.

Shhhh! Don't tell anyone, we have to keep this a secret! Just think of how many likes we could get on Instagram if we were to tell people we make homemade marshmallows. I mean, neighbors knocking down the doors, people. You're about to become famous.

You ready? Pull out your camera. We're about to blow our Instagram notifications up. Isn't it fabu being awesome like we are?

Here we go!

 

Homemade Snickerdoodle Marshmallows

Start by sprinkling three packets of unflavored gelatin into a cold bowl of water.

You can prep your pan now or later. Just spray it with nonstick baking spra, and sprinkle it with a powdered sugar, sugar, and cinnamon combo.

Now put the sugar, corn syrup, and a little bit of water in a skillet and boil away. See? This isn't scary at all! You want it to boil for about two minutes, or until it reaches the soft-ball stage on a candy thermometer.

Don’t have a candy thermometer? You can grab a glass of ice water and drizzle a bit of your boiling syrup into the water. If it curls into a little ball, which can be pressed into a flat disc with your fingers, you've officially reached soft-ball stage!

Now place the gelatin in your stand mixer and slowly add the syrup while the stand mixer is turned to low.

Once all the syrup is added, turn that baby to high and start beating until it's light and white and fluffy. The mixture will begin to thicken slightly. That's when you know it's done!

Pull half of the mixture out of the bowl, then add some cinnamon to the other half. Whip until mixed.

With slightly wet fingers or spatula, gently spread the top of your marshmallows flat. The flatter, the better! These babies keep whatever shape they cool in!
