Vanilla Mint Marshmallows

These Vanilla Mint Marshmallows are delicious homemade marshmallows with peppermint flavor. I make batches of these around Christmas and Valentine’s Day and I love to pop them on top of a mug of hot chocolate for a hint of peppermint and they look the part too!

To make these marshmallows start by bringing sugar, corn syrup and salt to a boil. Add the boiled sugar mixture to a bowl with gelatin and beat to make marshmallow. Add mint and vanilla and transfer to a loaf pan. Leave to set for a few hours before cutting into squares. These marshmallows will keep for up to 3 days in an airtight container.

To make Vanilla Mint Marshmallows, you will need the following ingredients:

Steps to make Vanilla Mint Marshmallows

1

Prepare baking sheet

1

Line a 9x5-inch bread loaf pan with parchment paper and grease well.

2

Bring sugar, syrup, salt and water to a boil

3

Combine ¾ cup of granulated sugar with ⅓ cup of corn syrup, a pinch of salt and 3 tablespoons of the water in a saucepan. Turn the heat to high and bring to a boil. Boil until the temperature reaches 238 °F on a candy thermometer.

3

Combine gelatin with water

1

Add the remaining 3 tablespoons of water to a large bowl and sprinkle 1 packet of gelatin on top and leave to sit.

4

Add gelatin mixture to boiling sugar mixture

1

When the sugar syrup reaches 238 °F on the candy thermometer, slowly drizzle it into the gelatin mixture while beating constantly with a handheld mixer. Take care not to splash the syrup on the edges of the bowl, or it will harden immediately.

5

Beat well

5

Continue to beat the mixture for 5-6 minutes, until white, fluffy and very sticky.

6

Add mint and vanilla extracts

1

Beat in ¼ teaspoon each of peppermint and vanilla extract and beat until fully combined.

7

Transfer marshmallow to pan

2

Transfer the marshmallow mixture to the prepared loaf pan and spread.

8

Rest

3h

Let the marshmallow set uncovered for at least 3 hours.

9

Cut marshmallow

3

Sprinkle powdered sugar on a work surface. Transfer the marshmallow mixture from the pan to the work surface. Slice into squares, dipping the knife in powdered sugar between cuts. Or using a cookie cutter, cut the marshmallow into heart shapes.

10

Roll in powdered sugar

3

Roll the edges of the marshmallows in powdered sugar.

11

Store

1

Store the marshmallows for up to 3 days in an airtight container at room temperature.
