Makes about 40
2 1/2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup light corn syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
Confectioners' sugar, for dusting
Combine gelatin and 1/2 cup cold water in the bowl of an electric mixer with whisk attachment. Let stand 30 minutes.
Combine granulated sugar, corn syrup, salt, and 1/2 cup water in a small heavy saucepan; place over low heat, and stir until sugar has dissolved. Wash down sides of pan with a wet pastry brush to dissolve sugar crystals.
Clip on a candy thermometer; raise heat to high. Cook syrup without stirring until it reaches 244F (firm-ball stage). Immediately remove pan from heat.
With mixer on low speed, slowly and carefully pour syrup into the
softened gelatin. Increase speed to high; beat until mixture is very thick and white and has almost tripled in volume, about 15 minutes. Add vanilla; beat to incorporate.
Generously dust an 8-by-12-inch glass baking pan with confectioners sugar. Pour marshmallow mixture into pan. Dust top with confectioners sugar; wet your hands, and pat it to smooth. Dust with confectioners sugar; let stand overnight, uncovered, to dry out. Turn out onto a board; cut marshmallows
with a dry hot knife into 1 1/2-inch squares, and dust with more confectioners' sugar.

I haven't, but I saw that show and they looked absolutely yummy! Would be great to go with homemade hot chocolate. I've also seen them cut out in heart shapes for Valentine's day.

Haven't made them, but I have dehydrated them and they taste like the little marshmallows in cereal. I would cut them up smaller the next time I dried them. Then they would be cute in cocoa mixes. I think it would be fun to try to make your own marshmallows. I enjoy making unusual things!
