These homemade marshmallows, made with confectioners’ and granulated sugar, corn syrup, gelatin, vanilla, and cornstarch are easier to make than you may think.
Grilling marshmallows may have been the only thing I enjoyed about summer camp. They came in wax-paper–wrapped boxes and then, later, in bags with “jet-puffed” printed on them, but they were always a mystery. What was this white, spongy stuff, and why didn’t any mom know how to make it?
Well, we know now. Make these marshmallows and grill them at the end of a barbecue, toast them around a campfire, add them to s’mores, or just dip in the Fabulous Hot Fudge Sauce from the Malted Milk Ball Sundae.–David Leite
LC One Other Way To Indulge In Marshmallows Note
There’s one other very compelling way to indulge in marshmallows that David failed to mention above, and that’s straight up. C’mon, you know who you are, those of you who’d run around the house or the campground with one arm buried elbow deep in the bag of marshmallows, the other arm clutching the bag close to your chest, hands and lips and face sticky from smudged sweetness. It’s okay. We understand.

Recipe Testers Reviews
These marshmallows were really good and easy to make! I made them for my godchildren to take on their trip to Disney World. They were amazed that I actually made marshmallows and had several questions about the making of them, seeing as it’s not something that people really think about making at home. The kids commented that they were “so good and taste a lot better than the regular ones!” They were not overly sweet, were perfectly fluffy, and the vanilla flavoring really came through nicely. I didn’t add food coloring to this batch, but can’t wait to get creative by adding colors.
