Homemade Vanilla Bean Marshmallows
I wish I would have gotten a picture of them by themselves...but I think you can tell what they would look like for the most part with this photo.
These are sooooooo good! Especially when melted slightly...and because of this, guess who's making homemade marshmallows come Bon Fire Time?!?! YUP I've been nominated!!!

- 1 c
- water, divided
- 3 pkg
- unflavored gelatin
- 1 1/2 c
- 1 c
- light corn syrup
- vanilla bean, scraped or 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste
- 1/4 tsp
- sea salt
- 1 Tbsp
- vanilla extract
- 1/4 c
- powdered sugar
- 1/4 c
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine the remaining 1/2 c water, sugar, corn syrup, vanilla bean seeds or paste and salt. Cook over medium heat until the mixture reaches 240 on a candy thermometer, remove from heat.
Using a spatula that has been lightly coated with cooking spray pour marshmallow into prepared pan and spread as evenly as possible. Dust with a layer of sugar mixture. Again, reserving the rest for later. Let stand uncovered at least 4 hours or overnight.
Roll each marshmallow in the sugar mixture to coat all sticky sides. This prevents them from sticking together.
