How to make homemade marshmallows
Making homemade marshmallows is really easy! The trick is to continually stir the syrup in the saucepan until the sugar melts. You will need to use a candy thermometer as the syrup needs to reach 240 degrees. After, pour the syrup into a bowl and add the unflavoured gelatin, then slowly mix with a hand mixer. Gradually increase the speed of the mixer to high until stiff peaks begin to form about 10-15 minutes. Pour into a pan and let the homemade marshmallows sit. Once they are set, cut into desired shapes.
