Vegan marshmallows made by cooking sugar and corn syrup and whipping it into shape.
INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 3 cups white sugar
- 1/4 cup corn syrup
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup water
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 cup confectioners' sugar for dusting
Generously coat a 9x13 dish with cooking spray.
In a large saucepan, combine sugar, corn syrup, salt and water. Heat to between 234 and 240 degrees F (112 to 116 degrees C), or until a small amount of syrup dropped into cold water forms a soft ball that flattens when removed from the water and placed on a flat surface. Remove from heat and beat with an electric mixer until stiff peaks form, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in vanilla. Pour into prepared pan.
Chill in refrigerator 8 hours or overnight. To cut, loosen edges with a knife. Dust surface with confectioners' sugar, and turn out onto a waxed paper lined surface. Dust with confectioners' sugar again and cut with a knife.
