If you don’t have a stand mixer, this can be made in a large, deep roasting pan or baking dish. Just be sure to generously coat the pan with cooking spray and line it with parchment paper (or waxed paper). Also, be sure to oil all hands and utensils, as marshmallow is very sticky.

Combine gelatin and 1/2 cup of the cold water in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment. Let stand for 15 minutes.

Pour into prepared pan and smooth with an oiled spatula or your clean, oiled fingers (wet them).

Start by washing your hands and setting out all the ingredients. You’ll need a large mixing bowl and hand mixer, a metal baking pan, a small bowl, a strainer, a small amount of vegetable oil or powdered sugar, and an empty jar to use as a marshmallow dispenser (see below).

Pour the mixture into your prepared pan. It will fill up to the brim, so you might want to use a slightly larger pan than the suggested size. Wet your hands and then use them to spread the marshmallow evenly across the pan.

Let the marshmallow cool until it is lukewarm to the touch. Then, using the mixer, whip it until very thick and fluffy. It will take anywhere from five to ten minutes to get it to that point.

You can experiment with different ratios of sugar to corn syrup to see which results in the best tasting and most fluffy marshmallows. You can also try adding extracts to change the flavor. Vanilla is the classic choice, but other flavors like mint, chocolate, and strawberry work well, too.
