I love a good marshmallow and these Peppermint Marshmallows are definitely festive. Add them into hot chocolate or turn them into the best s’mores ever.

  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons Unflavored Gelatin
  • 1/2 Cup Cold Water
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Cup Light Corn Syrup
  • 1/2 Cup Water
  • 1/8 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1 Teaspoon Peppermint Extract
  • 10 Drops Red Food Coloring
  • 1 Cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 Cup Cornstarch
  1. Line bottom of 9x13 inch baking dish with parchment paper and coat with cooking spray.
  2. In large-size bowl add 1/2 cup cold water. Sprinkle gelatin over top.
  3. In medium-size saucepan add sugar, corn syrup, 1/2 cup water, and kosher salt. Heat to a boil on high and boil 1 to 2 minutes until sugar dissolves. Stir constantly. Continue to boil, without stirring, 4 minutes. Candy thermometer should read 240 degrees.
  4. Remove from heat and slowly pour syrup mixture over gelatin. Beat on low and increase to high. Beat 7 to 8 minutes until mixture is very shiny, white and has nearly tripled in volume. Beat in peppermint extract.
  5. Transfer mixture to baking dish. With wet hands pat mixture gently to fill pan into and even layer. Drop food coloring on top of mixture. Drag a knife through food coloring to create a swirl patter all over. Let stand, uncovered, at least 12 hours or overnight until set.
  6. Remove parchment paper from pan and cut marshmallows into squares.
  7. To package, roll each square in a combination of powdered sugar and cornstarch before placing in bag.
  8. Serves 6
