Homemade Marshmallow Ingredients:
.75 ounces unflavored gelatin 3 packets
3/4 cup cold water divided
2 cups sugar
2/3 cup light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon vanilla or almond extract
1/4 cup powdered sugar

Directions

Moon Milk Directions

  1. In a medium sauce pan, bring milk to a low boil.

  2. Stir in maple syrup for 1 minute, then stir in nutmeg and vanilla extract.

  3. Serve with marshmallows.

 

Marshmallow Directions

  1. Line a 9x9 inch square pan with plastic wrap and lightly grease it with cooking spray.

  2. Add 1/2 cup cold water to the bowl of an electric mixer. Sprinkle gelatin powder over the water. Let soak for 10 minutes while you continue with step 3.

  3. In a medium sauce pan combine sugar, corn syrup, and remaining 1/4 cup water over medium-high heat. Whisk until sugar is just dissolved and bring to a rapid boil. Once the liquid starts boiling, stop whisking and set a timer for 1 minute.

  4. Pour the boiling mixture from the sauce pan into the bowl of the stand mixer. Turn it on low and work up to high speed. Allow to beat for 10-12 minutes until fluffy and just warm (no longer hot). Beat in the extract until incorporated.

  5. Thoroughly grease your hands and a rubber spatula or spoon with cooking spray and transfer mixture into your prepared pan in an even layer.

  6. Grease a second sheet of plastic wrap and gently pat into place on top of the marshmallow mixture to create a seal so it doesn't dry out.

  7. Allow to set for 3-4 hours (or up to overnight) at room temperature.

  8. Sprinkle a cutting board with powdered sugar, transfer the marshmallow to the cutting board and sprinkle more powdered generously over the top and sides.

  9. Use a sharp knife to cut into squares, toss with more powdered sugar. Store in airtight container at room temperature.
