These marshmallows also look fantastic wrapped up and given as gifts -- and with Valentine's Day right around the corner, you can give them as a sweet treat to your friends and family. We cut some of our marshmallows into heart shapes, and they'll be a welcome topping to our cups of cocoa all February long. You can store them in an airtight container in your refrigerator until you are ready to give them away or enjoy them immediately. Read on for the simple instructions!
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients
- 1 3/4 cups organic sugar
- 1 cup water
- 3/4 cup organic light corn syrup
- 1/4 cup organic powdered sugar
- 4 tbsp agar powder
- 1 tbsp organic vanilla
Step 2: Soak the Agar Powder
You will need to soak the agar powder in 1/2 cup cold water until it is completely absorbed, which can take about 10 minutes.
Step 3: Heat it Up
While the agar powder is soaking, bring the 1/2 cup water, 1 3/4 cups organic sugar and 3/4 cup organic light corn syrup to a boil in a saucepan. Stir it constantly over medium heat, taking care not to let it boil over.
