Making your own marshmallows is easy and fun. Make them into any shape or flavor that you want and it’s cheaper than the store bought ones!



  • 3 packages of powdered gelatin (packages are 0.25 ounces or 1 tablespoon each)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light corn syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 tablespoon Pumpkin Pie Spice
  • Cornstarch for dusting pan
  • Powdered sugar for dusting marshmallows


  1. Add the three packages of powdered gelatin and 1/2 cup water to the bowl of a mixer.
  2. Let stand and bloom while you are cooking sugar.
  3. In a separate heavy-bottomed saucepan, add 1/2 cup water, corn syrup, sugar, and salt.
  4. Bring to a boil and add the candy thermometer.
  5. Cook until temperature reaches 240F or the soft-ball stage.
  6. Once the sugar reaches that temperature, remove from heat, turn on the mixer on low, and drizzle the sugar mixture into the gelatin.
  7. Once you have added all the sugar, turn the mixer on high and whip until it turns bright white and thick!
  8. While the marshmallow is whipping, dust a 9X13 dish with cornstarch.
  9. Add the vanilla and the pumpkin pie spice and mix until incorporated.
  10. Pour the marshmallow mixture into the dusted pan.
  11. Dust some more cornstarch on top to coat the marshmallow.
