Pink marshmallows bien sur!

Pink dot bags are fun with pink ribbon

Dust pan first with confectioners sugar or it won't release!
Happy Pink Saturday!

I actually made these for Christmas for giving and for us to enjoy with hot chocolate. I was watching Ina Garten one day and she made some (not pink) and I was inspired

They are fairly easy to make. Little ones helping must be careful the corn syrup gets very hot!

I am going to make more for Easter to put in baskets with some coco mix.

Ina's Homemade Marshmallow

3 packages unflavored gelatin
1 1/2 cups sugar

1 cup light corn syrup

1/4 kosher salt

1 Tablespoon good vanilla extract ( or rose flavoring, or even mint flavor)

pink food coloring or any pastel looks pretty

Confectioners sugar for dusting

Combine gelatin and 1/2 cup of cold water in the bowl of mixer using a whisk attachment allowing it to sit while you make the syrup

Combine sugar, corn syrup, salt and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves . Raise the heat up high and cook until the syrup reaches 240 F degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat.

Mixer on low slowly pour the sugar syrup into the dissolved gelatin . Whip until mixture is very thick ( about 15 minutes) add flavoring and coloring. Place in big glass or Pyrex pan allow to dry uncovered overnight. I dusted the pan first with confectioners sugar. Cut squares with a warm knife and make sure they are lightly dusted all over with confectioners sugar so they don't stick together. Bag and share! They are SOOOO much nicer than store bought ones. Enjoy! This is a very European style of treat they have them in all flavors in candy shops in Paris.

I am joining in Pink Saturday!:

Have a Pink day!


  1. I adore homemade marshmallows. Next time I need to try color and flavor. Yum. I want some right now. Happy Pink Saturday!

  2. Yum!Hot chocolate is actually my favorite thing to drink and marshmallows make it more special. I actually saw pink marshmallows at the store a couple weeks ago. I've seen them on blogs, but never at the store. I never thought to make my own! Happy Pink and have a great weekend!
