Funfetti vanilla marshmallows recipe

Everyone loves marshmallows, but there is something about home-made ones that is just so much better than store bought and they are so simple to make you wont want to buy them ever again! You can make vanilla ones and dip them in chocolate or toasted coconut or you could add caramel or strawberry flavoring instead of vanilla to the mix, the options are endless!

What you need:

3  packets of unflavored gelatin
1 cup cold water, divided
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1/2 cup light corn syrup or golden syrup
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon  vanilla extract
Sprinkles
Icing sugar for dusting
A bit of butter for greasing the baking dish
Method:
In a large bowl combine the gelatin with 1/2 cup of the water; set aside.
Meanwhile, combine the remaining water with the sugar, corn syrup, and salt and vanilla extract in a small saucepan.  Cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves.  Increase the heat to high and cook until the syrup mixture reaches 240º F on a candy thermometer or the soft ball stage.  With a mixer on low, carefully and slowly pour the syrup into the dissolved gelatin.  Increase the speed to high and whip until the mixture is white, glossy, and very thick, about 15 minutes.  Add half of the sprinkles
Grease the baking dish. Using a fine-mesh sieve or shaker, generously dust your baking dish with the icing sugar. Sprinkle some of your funfetti at the bottom of the dish. Pour the marshmallow mixture into the pan.  Smooth the top with an off-set spatula and sprinkle with more funfetti.  Allow a few hours for the marshmallows to dry out.
Turn the marshmallows out onto a cutting surface and cut them into squares or desired shapes.  Dust the cut sides with more confectioners’ sugar or sprinkles.  Store the marshmallows in an airtight container or bag.  Enjoy!
