Because what's a homemade graham cracker without a homemade marshmellow? So, I went at it. It's surprisingly easy and the only things the recipe called for that I didn't have on hand was corn syrup and a candy thermometer. I also found this recipe at Smitten Kitchen.
Mix 3 1/2 envelopes of gelatin with a half cup of water and let stand (this will become hard).
In the meantime, put half cup water in a saucepan with 1 cup corn syrup and 1 cup granulated sugar. Heat to 190 degrees then mix with hard gelatin and beat with hand mixer until tripled in size.
Next, beat 2 eggs with hand mixer (clean the sugar off first) until doubled in size. Add this to sugar mixture & beat until just mixed.
Add mixture to oiled pan. You should also generously sprinkle pan with powdered sugar so the marshmellows don't stick. Once poured in, sprinkle more powdered sugar on top. Use a generous amount.
Chill for 3 hours in the fridge and then cut into cubes and enjoy!
I've been looking forward to having a bonfire so we can make smores but it's been too dang hot out. These do toast up nicely though with a lighter, or even over a gas stovetop burner.
