Homemade marshmallows without the sugar!
1. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with parchment paper and dust with confectioners sugar. 2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, stir together the 1/2 cup cold water and the gelatin. Fit the stand mixer with the whisk attachment. 3. In a medium saucepan, combine the honey and 1/2 cup water. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the mix reaches 240 degrees F. on a candy thermometer, about 10-12 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat.4. With the mixer on medium speed, carefully and slowly pour the hot syrup into the gelatin mixture. Add the vanilla and salt. Raise the mixer speed to high and beat for 8-10 minutes, or until the mixture is fluffy. 5. Working quickly, transfer the marshmallow mixture in the prepared pan. Smooth the top into an even layer. Let sit at room temp for 1 to 2 hours, until set. 6. Generously dust the top of the marshmallow with confectioners’ sugar and then invert it onto a clean cutting board. Cut the marshmallow into squares, they will be sticky. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 1 month.
If Using To make Krispie Treats: You can simply skip the setting process and use the marshmallow "fluff".
Confectioners' Sugar: you don't have to use this, but it makes working with the marshmallows much, much easier. Just a little dusting is all you need.
